'Pop-Porn' is Neo-Pop Erotica for the Masses! - MF Gallery
Through February 17, 2019 - Brooklyn

'Pop-Porn' is Neo-Pop Erotica for the Masses! Five artists celebrate all forms of intimacy; untethered, unabashed, and unbound. Pop-Porn will debut at MF Gallery in Brooklyn on Jan.12th 2019. Curated by Matt Myers, aka Eronin, Pop-Porn spotlights five artists working with modern concepts of eroticism and desire, and how it is essential to us right now. Exhibition curator Matt Myers has worked and shown his art at Sotheby’s NY auction house since 2001. He became keenly aware of a cross-connect between Pop-Art and Eroticism, and the idea of Pop-Porn emerged as a platform to showcase a group of artists sharing this vision. The artists selected to participate in the Pop-Porn exhibition are: Eronin, Fernando Carpaneda, Ellen Stagg, Martina Secondo Russo and Anna Park. Just like Warhol, Wesselmann and Lichtenstein drew from everyday images from mass media and popular culture to create Pop-Art, Pop-Porn also draws from mass media, but from more provocative sources. There is a ever-growing trend in major venues and even auction houses to promote erotica as valid and essential. For two years in a row, Sotheby’s London has celebrated erotica in their highly successful public auctions ... (read more)

Esmé Weijun Wang: The Collected Schizophrenias w/ Alice Sola Kim - Books are Magic
February 19, 2019 - Brooklynl

In The Collected Schizophrenias, Esmé Weijun Wang details her journey toward her diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder and provides insight into a condition long misunderstood. Written with a sharp analytic eye, which she honed as a former lab researcher at Stanford, these essays range from exploring the depths of a rare form of psychosis to how she uses fashion to present as high-functioning; from the failures of the higher education system to the complexity of compounding factors such as PTSD and Lyme disease. Schizophrenia is not a single unifying diagnosis, and Wang discusses also the medical community's own disagreement about labels and procedures for diagnosing those with mental illness and examines the ways in which schizophrenia manifests in her own life. Exhaustively researched and deeply moving, The Collected Schizophrenias is an essay collection of undeniable power. Esmé Weijun Wang is the author of The Border of Paradise. She received the Whiting Award in 2018 and was named one of Granta's Best of Young American Novelists of 2017. She holds an MFA from the University of Michigan and lives in San Francisco.

Advanced Lighting Patterns Workshop - Adorama
February 23, 2019 - New York

Lighting can be a frustrating experience for newbies to studio work because while it is one of the most important tools for creating the image, it's not the only thing to think about and control during a photo shoot. There's also the direction to a creative team, creating the set, posing and directing the subject or model, composing the frame, scanning the subject or model for any necessary hair/makeup/wardrobe adjustments and capturing the image (occasionally reviewing the images if you tether while shooting). Within the lighting task there's not only deciding on how many lights and positioning them to achieve the result you're looking for but balancing the power as well. Once you get a good amount of practice under your belt, all of these things WILL begin to come second nature to you, and then the fun begins! During this workshop, we will cover several more lighting patterns to help you capture more interesting and creatively lit images. We will have a model for this workshop and it will include lecture, demo and "boot-camp style" hands-on practice so be sure to bring your camera and camera USB cord for tethering to Adobe Lightroom.

What distinguishes this show from other group shows exhibiting photography is the mingling of digital techniques and more traditional compositional methods.
