Janet Borden Inc is please to present CITY VIEWS, a group exhibition including many gallery artists, including Tina Barney, Martin Parr, Jan Groover. Each lighthearted image approaches the rigors and dilemmas of summer in the city according to each artist’s view.
A rare vintage Weegee print shows The Empire State Building fending off a summer strike of lightning. John Pfahl’s Jeff Koons’s Puppy is the vintage version that is currently reprised at Rockefeller Center. Martin Parr’s Art Fair patron in Dubai, speaks to summer travel to other cities, as does Tina Barney’s charming family of The Daughters. Jim Dow’s large format view of an empty ballroom in an exclusive club typifies the languor and ghostly quiet of summer in the city.
