GoSee loves .... 'PAY ATTENTION MOTHER FUCKERS' - Limited Edition screen printed poster by Broomberg and Chanarin
This month’s poster is a homage to Bruce Nauman’s ‘PAY ATTENTION MOTHER FUCKERS’, an early example of his ‘word-images’. Made in 1973 the phrase has a new-found resonance in the age of social media; when attention has become a commodity that each of us is trading in new and mysterious ways.

Each unique screen print is made in our East London studio on a different page of the International New York Times, signed and numbered by the artists. Posters can be purchased at choppedliverpress.com

'What could possibly go wrong?' group exhibition about our battle with nature and ourselves by curator Stephen Mallon in New York
The exhibition ' What could possibly go wrong?' will be at Walnut Hill Fine Art at 551 Warren Hill in Hudson, NY. It is on view May 25th until July 28th. 'We welcome you to curatorial vision of Stephen Mallon and a night of exploring the work of 11 contemporary artists, all traversing environmental and social challenges we as a society have created.

We are pleased to introduce you to the photography of Sasha Bezzubov who documented the California fires more than a decade ago, as well as Lori Nix’s illustrations of cities being taken back by nature. This exhibition exquisitely visualizes our battle with nature and ourselves. Sarah Olson's painting captures the scale of Hurricane Florence. Karen Marston's immense paintings of our icecaps melting mirrored by the forest fire also rendered in intense detail reflect the current environmental challenges we face.

These personal works of art are all an external manifestation of an apprehensive mood fed by a growing litany of frightening catastrophes, a collection of many destructive crises consuming the world. More than creating a surreal or fantastical landscape as in Ken Ragdale’s work, these images are the mirror of our current environmental predicament. Barry Rosenthal and Alejandro Duran both create a new landscape with the waste they have collected, joining or building its own landscape.

We invite you the viewer to join us in asking what could possibly go wrong?? With all of the terrifying visualizations of our reality, we still have room for play as seen with Dave Cole’s sculptures merging children’s toys with grenades." Opening reception for the artists May 25th, 5 until 7pm.

Exhibiting artists : Sasha Bezzubov, Dave Cole, Alejandro Duran, Jessica Hargreaves, Sarah Olson, Karen Marston, Eva Nikolva, Lori Nix / Kathleen Gerber Ken Ragsdale, Barry Rosenthal and Zachary Skinne
 

Stephen Mallon
“What Could Possibly Go Wrong?” is Stephen’s first project as a curator. Stephen Mallon is a photographer and filmmaker who specialises in the industrial-scale creations of mankind at unusual moments of their life cycles. Mallon’s work blurs the line between documentary and fine art, revealing the industrial landscape to be unnatural, desolate and functional yet simultaneously also human, surprising and inspiring. It has been featured in publications and by broadcasters including The New York Times, National Geographic, NBC, The Wall StreetJournal, The Daily Mail, MSNBC, The Atlantic, GQ, CBS , the London Times and Vanity Fair .Mallon has exhibited in cities including Miami, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, St. Louis and NewYork, as well is in England and Italy. As David Schonauer wrote in Pro Photo Daily , “Mallon’sSheeler, who glorified American steel and found art in its industrial muscle and smoke during the Great Depression.” Mallon has been a juror and portfolio reviewer for Scholastic, ASMP, B&H, FIT, RIT, and American Photo in the past. He has also been a thesis advisor at the School of Visual Arts along with currently teaching photography at the Miami Ad School. His recent exhibition “Sea Train” at The New York Transit Museum annex space at Grand Central Terminal has been featured in Artnet, Buzz Feed, Fox News, Galerie, Yahoo, and numerous other outlets. Mallon has been a board member of the New York chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers since 2002 and served as president from 2006 to 2009. © // 15 files // show complete blog

Fly Me To The Moon! Bring Me To The Stars! Lena Lapschina at Kunsthaus Zürich
When Kunsthaus Zürich invited me to be in a heavenly exhibit called “Fly Me To The Moon”, I sat back, listened to sound from outer space – and remembered a photo series I’ve produced once upon a time at the various Star Cities. The following weeks I tried to recap that very moment when people for the first time left the Earth behind and set off towards the Stars. Scientists – from Galilei to Tsiolkovsky – came to my mind, and formulae, and pictures from cosmic voyages. The result of this endeavour is “Bring Me To The Stars”. Eight photographs, with annotations in the margins, elucidatory or lunatic, a fusion of dreams and reality.
