Staring at the Sun
David Zwirner is pleased to announce Staring at the Sun, a group show highlighting work by the graduating class of Yale's Photography MFA program, hosted at the gallery’s 533 West 19th Street location in New York. Curated by James Welling, Staring at the Sun includes works by Emily Barresi, Dylan Beckman, Amartya De, Anabelle DeClement, Eileen Emond, Ian Kline, Chinaedu Nwadibia, Brian Orozco, Rosa Polin, and Jessica Tang. Over the past two years, through the sustained commitment to looking, these ten artists have forged a pact not to take a single particle of light for granted. Their shared belief in meeting the exterior world with one’s internal imagination has resulted in visual expressions that could never have existed until light revealed itself under the gravity of this moment.
