New Work by Carl Gunhouse
Field Projects (526 W 26th St. #807, New York, NY)
One Night Only Saturday February 2nd 6-9PM
Join us Saturday, February 2nd, for the Field Projects Pop-up Exhibition: Falling Apart Book Release Party with new works by Carl Gunhouse, to celebrate the release of his 2nd monograph Falling Apart published by Waal-Boght Press.
The Pop-up Exhibition: Falling Apart draws on Carl Gunhouse's academic background as graduate student in American history to investigate the way in which history tends to affect our perception of current events. The work is culled from images made over six years of wandering across America, a path based on intuition and the chase of the occasional historic event. This journey began in the crumbling of the Bush presidency and continued through Obama’s first term, witnessing the unraveling of American prosperity and the long slog of dealing with the repercussions. The resulting work lacks the grandiosity of journalism and its constant hysteria for the now and instead exposes the little visual bits of America that are left to history and give voice to our shared experience.
Signed copies of Falling Apart will be available for purchase for $25.00 at the release party and online at www.WaalBoghtPress.info
