Stephen Shore: Survivors in Ukraine
Mar 5–12, 2022
303 Gallery
New York, USA

303 Gallery is proud to present an exhibition by Stephen Shore, of photographs from the artist’s series Survivors in Ukraine. This body of work was shot in Ukraine in 2012 and 2013, in and around the homes and villages of Holocaust survivors. Shore was introduced to his subjects through the Survivor Mitzvah Project, which helps aging Holocaust survivors living in Eastern Europe and the former USSR.

With each image, the viewer is confronted with echoes of Ukraine’s past and present as the nation faces Russian invasion, and once again, the tragedy of displacement. Shore’s colorful, melancholic still lifes and sweeping rural and urban landscapes – alongside his warm and honest portraits – create an arresting body of work that captures the lingering effects of war on the landscape and its people.

Widely recognized as one of the most significant and influential artists of our time, Stephen Shore has principally restructured the language of photography. Tapping into popular culture and a specific type of vernacular imagery, Shore has inspired generations of artists working with the photographic medium to find poetry and order in the everyday. His pioneering use of color photography in the 1970s and beyond has made him one of art history’s most revered and exploratory practitioners of photographic possibilities.

    June Clark: Witness is the first survey in Canada of the Toronto-based artist June Clark, who, since the late 1960s, has developed a unique and groundbreaking practice spanning photo-based work, text, collage, installation, and sculptural assemblages. Born in Harlem, New York, Clark immigrated to Canada in 1968 and subsequently made Toronto her home. The questions of identity formation and their connection to our points of origin fuel her practice. (more…)
