THE NEW SERIES —31 AT 31— AT MOPLA 2013

The entire fourth year of the project will make it’s premiere on April 18, 2013 at a show entitled ProJekt LA curated by Kate Osba at space15Twenty in Hollywood CA. Hope to see you there!

EXHIBITION EXTENDED
Great news from NextSpace LA — the show has been getting so much positive response that NextSpace wants to keep it installed for another month: now it’s up through the end of February!
 That’s another whole month to stop in and see the entire first three years of the project — 90 prints in all.  And if you think music, a crowd, and good wine and beer makes looking at pictures even more fun (which it does, of course) then please stop in for the closing reception.
Pictured to the left are new 5x7” postcards announcing the show’s extension.

OPENING RECEPTION A SUCCESS!

On October 22, 2011, the first three years of 28 at 28 went on view at NextSpace LA’s atrium, with 90 prints chronicling my peers’ personal evolution from 2009 through 2011.

THANK YOU!!
All my gratitude and a warm (digital) embrace to the friends and  colleagues who came and joined in the celebration.

INSTALLATION COMPLETE
Once I’d made a few trips up  and down the 24’ extension ladder to measure and hang the floating  mounts for the photos, I realized that I’d arranged for a very ambitious  installation.  The plan was to install 90 18x24” prints on a 22’ tall by 50’ long cast concrete wall. After  a week of long days and nights in NextSpace’s atrium, an hour before  the opening was scheduled to start, with the white wine on ice and the  DJ testing the speakers, it sunk in: I’d achieved my goal and hung a  taxonomic display of the entire body of work to date. I’d fit each photo  from the complete 28 at 28, 29 at 29, and 30 at 30 into a grid that  filled the space.

The atrium, with floating staircase bringing  the viewer to the higher  photos as she ascends, is beautifully suited to  the work. I couldn’t  be happier or more energized to continue with the  serial project in the  years to come.Thank you to the 28 at 28  subjects who made  themselves available for shoots since July of 2009,  and for the  enthusiasm of the friends and colleagues who helped me put  the  installation together in the last few months.
