press release :: Land Use Survey

NEW YORK – Jen Bekman Gallery is pleased to present Land Use Survey, a group exhibition featuring photographs, paintings and works on paper by twenty-seven artists.

An opening reception will be held on Wednesday, June 30, 2010, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Land Use Survey will be on view Thursday, July 1 through Sunday, August 14, 2010 at Jen Bekman Gallery, located at 6 Spring Street, New York, New York.

Land Use Survey functions as a critical appraisal of land use across the country, as a document of the changing landscape vernacular, and as a celebration of the artists who take diverse approaches to capturing this genre. The show opens with a series of landscapes that remain untouched by man. Slowly, signs of human intrusion begin to appear: car tracks, empty bottles, a retaining wall and piles of dirt. As one progresses through the exhibition, both in the gallery space and within the areas described by the works, increasingly more land turns over to commercial and residential development, before finally giving way to the dizzying geometries of the modern metropolis.

The exhibition features work by Ian Baguskas, Chris Ballantyne, Beth Dow, Christoph Gielen, Todd Hido, Liz Kuball, Nick Lamia, Scott Lawrence, Michael Lundgren, Alex MacLean, David Maisel, Paho Mann, Louisa McElwain, Sarah McKenzie, Joel Meyerowitz, Dana Miller, Brad Moore, Matthew Moore, Michelle Muldrow, Justin Newhall, Ross Racine, Tyson Anthony Roberts, Andrew Scott Ross / Scott Lawrence, Aili Schmeltz, Bryan Schutmaat, Alec Soth and William Wegman.
