Filomena Soares Gallery (here): Helena Almeida (2), Vasco Araujo (1 diptych), Pilar Albarracin (1), Joao Penalvia (2)
Corkin Gallery (here): Chad Gerth (22 as one installation), Frank Madler (1+1 diptych), Iain Baxter (2), Barbara Astman (7), NE Thing Co. (2), Andre Kertesz (9), Lazlo Moholy-Nagy (1), Margaret Bourke-White (1), Walker Evans (1), Sophie Taeuber-Arp (1), Brassai (1), Thaddeus Holownia (24). In addition to a wall of vintage work on the outside of the booth, the interior was a single artist installation of Holownia's Walden Pond Revisited, a suite of large scale black and white tree trunks on all four walls. I didn't get a price.
Galerie Grita Insam (here): Candida Hofer (1)
Giorgio Persano (here): Michele Zaza (18), Per Barclay (1), Michelangelo Pistoletto (5), Mimmo Paladino (24 in a spiral)
303 Gallery (here): Stephen Shore (1), Rodney Graham (1), Collier Schorr (1), Florian Maier-Aichen (1)
Ratio 3 (here): Mitzi Pederson (2), Ryan McGinley (1), Lutz Bacher (1 group), Geof Oppenheimer (1), Miriam Böhm (2). These visual puzzles by Böhm were among my favorites at the show. I liked the layered approach to simple art materials, photographing and rephotographing from slightly different angles to create echoes and spatial depth, while maintaining apparent alignment. There was a terrific article on Böhm in ArtForum a few months back. They are priced at $4500 each.
XL Gallery (here): Blouesoup Group (1), Igor Moukhin (1)
i8 Gallery (here): Hrafnkell Sigurdsson (6), Olafur Eliasson (16 in grid), Sigurdur Gudmundsson (5). I never seem to tire of Eliasson's grids of images; this one captures windswept green plants in black rocky dirt. I should have also taken a picture of Sigurdsson's series of chucks of ice on the back side wall. There was no one around to get a price for the Eliasson.
Galerie Barbara Thumm (here): Sabine Hornig (1)
Andrew Kreps Gallery (here): Roe Ethridge (1), Peter Piller (12, pinned to wall), Andrea Bowers (1). I have been a bit of an Ethridge skeptic to date, but I found this double layer image to be more complex and compelling. It's priced at $10000.
Arndt (here): Vik Muniz (3), Sophie Calle (1)
Kerlin Gallery (here): Paul Seawright (1)
Murray Guy (here): Kota Ezawa (1), Moyra Davey (group of 25)
Rhona Hoffman Gallery (here): Vito Acconci (1), Robert Heinecken (9), Gordon Matta-Clark (1). I've always wanted to find a Matta-Clark photograph with dense layers of geometric cut aways for our own collection, so I was particularly covetous of this multi-image work. The price was $175000.
Noga Gallery of Contemporary Art (here): Ori Gersht (1)
Anna Schwartz Gallery (here): AES+F (1)
Galleri Charlotte Lund (here): Maria Friberg (1), Andres Serrano (2), Denise Grünstein (2). I very much liked the mix of performance and lushness in these images by Grünstein. The series uses hair to mask the model's face. I was shown another excellent image (in a monograph) where the model's head is being held by some kind of 19th century model posing contraption, once again, the tactile red hair blown across her face. They were $17000 each.
Clark & Faria Gallery (here): Scott McFarland (1), Greg Girard (1)
