Andrea Longacre-White, a conceptual photographer based in Los Angeles, will install large scale black and white scanner photographs to transform a dormant ground floor space in the historic Goodrich Gannett Neighborhood Center building on East 55th Street and St. Clair Avenue, one of the original Carnegie libraries, commissioned in 1903. For this project, Bellwether has collaborated with the St. Clair Superior Development Corporation, the Goodrich Gannett Neighborhood Center, and VIP.
Longacre-White uses photography to explore how technology mediates our understanding of the everyday. She works extensively with the scanning and reprinting of photographic images which rely on digital processes to question the reproduction of external reality. In the feature work, Ceiling, she displays photographic scans of architectural ceiling tiles in a space waiting to be returned to its architectural prominence.
The installation is presented courtesy of the artist and Various Small Fires, Los Angeles.
The exhibition is organized by Lisa Kurzner, curatorial researcher at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
