Men In Suits


 

Men in Suits.  The words can conjure up board meetings and business, or elegance and GQ, intrigue or luxury, an old-school uniform that is steadily falling out of favor.  Focusing on implications of conformity and its expectations as presented by contemporary artists, this show looks at images that explore the meaning and attitudes behind the outfit – be it a three piece with tie or a superhero. The show includes a range of work from the ominous imagery of Australian painter Christopher Orchard to the pointed humor of Natasha Mayers and David Kramer, headless close-ups by Magali Nougarede, ‘60s pop photographs by William John Kennedy and the iconic portraits of Andy Warhol, among others. The exhibit will kick off with an opening at our New York Project Space (24 W. 57th St., Suite 606) from 6-9pm on Wednesday, September 21.
