Please join us for the opening of Dust: The plates of the present, February 2013 - July 2015, curated by Sonel Breslav on September 15th from 6 to 8 pm. Nearly three years ago, artists Thomas Fougeirol and Jo-ey Tang began a project with the intent of turning a small storage space in Ivry-sur-Seine, a suburb just southeast of Paris, into a means of communal production.
An improvised darkroom was built and friends were invited.
The space was named Dust and the residency, The plates of the present. The project began in February 2013 with New York based artist G. William Webb. He completed a series of eight photograms, and as a result Fougeirol and Tang decided that each of the following participants would continue to produce eight photograms for the archive.
The archive of The plates of the present is ongoing to this day and is on view for the first time in its current entirety for the occasion of the exhibition Dust: The plates of the present, February 2013 - July 2015 at Baxter Street at the Camera Club of New York. The first comprehensive publication on this project will be launched alongside the opening of the exhibition. Published by Blonde Art Books and Secretary Press, the publication includes images from the archive and text contributions by Robin Cameron, Thomas Fougeirol, Mara Hoberman, Flora Katz, Brett Littman, and Jo-ey Tang.
