Paul Rickert Repositories: Selected Photographs
May 09-Jun 08 2019
- 19 days left
George Lawson Gallery is pleased to present selections from three series of photographs by artist, visual journalist and collector Paul Rickert, a reprisal of the solo presentation we mounted in Los Angeles this January for Photo LA. Rickert’s work considers the role of exhibition spaces as collectors of aesthetic objects, arbiters of cultural taste, and sometimes just dumping grounds. (The three series are titled, Repositories, Vaults of Heaven, and Shit Holes.) As an avid collector, Rickert provides a unique perspective on the rituals of designating and displaying art.
