CODE/SWITCH ...
Juror @blk_amanda

This exhibition seeks to explore how artists navigate existing in incongruent spaces, often known as code switching.
.
Additionally, this exhibition seeks to explore the myriad of ways modern English language is coded and used to codify objects, places and people and how artists resist, change, defy, challenge external code hierarchies,
patriarchies and the like.
.
Artists of color, Queer artists, differently abled artists, and those who are currently
breaking new ground in their photographic practice are strongly encouraged to apply. Your finished work must represent a firm connection to the origins of photography but need not be a representational photographic object per se.

“Bricklayer” (detail), Flora Foam, 2019. @joyces.chan •Do you Sleep with a Brick on your Nose?! Was what my brother’s friend in the 5th grade asked me on the school bus one morning. He subsequently would press playfully on my brother’s nose or compare the width of his nose to my brother’s nose to mine. He was sort of the class clown and didn’t seem to have a demeaning agenda, just a playful one. However, I was mortified and with each morning school bus ride, I quietly snuck deeper and deeper towards the back of the bus to avoid him. :: WALLS :: Joyce Chan :: Opening Reception: June 28.

•1977, This is a picture of my parents at their restaurant, the 1st Chinese-American restaurant in Scotia, NY. As a child, I remember sitting in the booths petting the flocked velvet wallpaper against the smooth gold background. There were Black & White versions. You will find this wallpaper pattern throughout the works at @phgallery , appropriated designs for a restaurant environment.

PH GALLERY + STUDIO’s gallery director, aka moi (@vphotoblogger ) had the opportunity to participate in an #infauxstructure project conducted by @madisonlavallee_art.
.
.
.
Essentially, a small group of creative folks were invited to fill a pothole with an item or items that relate to their artistic practice, identity or occupation. It was a bit performance, a bit sculptural, and a wonderfully collaborative effort of creation.
.
.
.
For my pothole, I chose the wilting flowers of the peony plant, freshly fallen flowers of a tree for which I do not know the name, a bit of wood from the same tree, and finally an experimental bit of darkroom photography I completed several years ago. The paper was coated with Liquid Rollei and exposed under light. In the experiment I had also placed other objects on top of the paper as I exposed it.
.
.
.
I was thinking about identity in general and mine in particular. The flowers bloom each year and are beautiful for a short time and then the die away. But there is a cycle of ebb and flow, of change and constant transformation. The flowers are soft and fragile. I placed those first, then I added the tree branch. Through life experiences teach us to be or become hard. Tree branches are movable and flexible to a point, too much pressure and they snap. But otherwise they move and blow with the wind. The Photographic image was torn and weathered at the edges its fixed and can no longer be changed, and because it was an experiment, it is imperfect. It’s black on white paper.
.
.

Fun stuff. In-faux-structure opens in August at @opalka_gallery I appreciate the opportunity to participate in another artist’s vision. @ Prospect Park

ABOUT US

PH GALLERY + STUDIO opened its Troy, NY location in September 2014. The gallery features contemporary, photo based works of art through a yearly artist exhibition program. The mission of the artist exhibition program at PH GALLERY + STUDIO is to provide an ongoing platform for the creative output of photo-based visual artists. We do this by providing an intimate, accessible, innovative exhibition space for their artistic works and projects to be seen and shown. We present photo-based artists whose work is, whether through concept or through method and process, pushing the boundaries of the photographic medium. Currently, we are particularly interested in work created by African American, Afro Caribbean, Afro-Latinx and Queer Folx. We offer one juried group exhibition in the Winter/Spring and three curated solo exhibitions which take place in Summer, Fall, and Winter.

PH GALLERY + STUDIO is currently open by appointment only on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Contact Director Pilar Arthur-Snead for an appointment.

August 2019 - January 2020
