After Color

After Color is a new exhibition which opened this week at Bose Pacia Gallery in New York City. The exhibition, which is curated by Amani Olu, examines artists that utilize black and white photography as a conceptual tool for an ongoing series of works.

In a time where large-scale color photography dominates both contemporary art and contemporary life, After Color takes a step back from the slickness that we are accustomed to in order to examine new meaning being developed in the arena of black and white photography. The result is a collection of surprisingly bold and graphic photographic imagery that makes use of the digital tools of today, while not neglecting the darkroom process from which the media was originally built.

The exhibitions artists include Michael Buhler-Rose, Talia Chetrit, Matthew Gamber, Stephen Gill, Adrien Missika, Pushpamala N, Arthur Ou, Noel Rodo-Vankeulen and Michael Vahrenwald, whose work is shown above.

After Color will be on view through August 21st, 2009.
