March 30 - May 4, 2002
Traywick Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition featuring photographic work by New York artist Marco Breuer. The exhibition opens March 30 and continues through May 4, 2002. There will be a reception for the artist on Saturday, March 30, from 6 to 8 pm.
For Errata, Breuer focuses his attention on the gaps, mistakes, and marginal events that occur in daily life. These photographic sketches are records of lapses and slip-ups, drawing their subject matter from "trivial culture," the realm of ordinary things, and sentiments.
Breuer's photography constitutes a stripped down, low-key approach to the medium. Known to draw color out of black and white photographic paper, he introduces new work in color material in this site-specific installation. Color paper is subjected to a range of erosive treatments, both before and after processing, turning photography itself into a physical act in the process. This is Marco Breuer's third exhibition at the Traywick Gallery.
An essay by San Francisco artist Chris Sullivan will be available.
Marco Breuer has exhibited widely throughout the United States and Europe. His work is in numerous collections including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts; and the Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart, Germany. He lives and works in New York City.
