Coup de Coeur : Duane Michals at DC Moore Gallery


DC Moore Gallery presents Those Who Dare, an exhibition of 5 artists, among them, one photographer : Duane Michals.  These artists work in brazen and original ways with the human figure, some very directly and others with veiled references. The title, Those Who Dare refers not only to the boldness of their own artistic expressions across a variety of media, but also to the adventurous and audacious subjects they choose.

Duane Michals has challenged viewers through his use of photography since his first sequenced photographs were shown in the 1960s when the artist wrote irreverently in the margins of his prints, something deemed as both innovative and sacrilegious at the time. In the ensuing decades, Michals’ art has been described as contemplative, confessional, and comedic. Two new sequences included present a wry look at the 89-year-old Michals. The first is the four-photograph sequence, Taxidermied Duane on Permanent Display in a Shop Window (2017), and the second Duane Sees a Rose (2018) is a metaphysical and epistemological play on Gertrude Stein’s infamous play on words.
