MILES ALDRIDGE – «The Age of Pleasure»

13th of March – 24th of May 2014

This spring, Christophe Guye Galerie hosts The Age of Pleasure – a major exhibition of photographer Miles Aldridge’s work, to coincide with the publication of the book  I Only Want You to Love Me, published by Rizzoli. This is the first solo exhibition of his work to date in Switzerland and will include small, medium and large scale photographic prints from throughout his career including previously unpublished material.

A fiercely original photographer, Miles Aldridge is best known for the technicolor dream-like worlds he creates and the glamorous, beautiful women who inhabit them. Aldridge creates ultra-cinematic images, drawing inspiration from film directors such as David Lynch and Federico Fellini as well as the psychedelic graphic design of his father, Alan Aldridge.

Aldridge’s photographs often depict women in haute-Stepford mode splashed with lurid candy colors. He captures his subjects in a state of dramatic contemplation, making them more complicated and intriguing than simply beautiful. As Glenn O’Brien describes, “Miles Aldridge constructs dreams. He understands the essential ingredients of the dream and he uses impeccable instinct in crafting the fragmented narratives an exquisite tapestry of right and wrong [defying] our waking order of things, our expectations and sensibility.”

Born in London in 1964, Aldridge studied illustration at Central St Martins, and briefly directed music videos before becoming a fashion photographer in the mid-90s. He has published his work in many influential magazines including Vogue Italia, American Vogue, Numéro, The New York Times and The New Yorker. His work was showcased in Weird Beauty at the International Center for Photography in New York in 2009, and he has works in the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery, London and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London. In addition he was invited to create a series of photographic prints, inspired by art, to celebrate the opening of the new Tate Britain.

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.
