Concurrent with the release of her latest book Got to Go, Bruce Silverstein Gallery presents Rosalind Fox Solomon’s fourth solo exhibition with the gallery. This immersive multimedia installation will include 30 photographs, as well as a three-channel projection with approximately 40 images and audio.
Got to Go evokes childhood memories, parents’ frantic voices, and the early imposition of deranged social codes and expectations. Fox Solomon’s environmental installation is jarring and psychologically freighted.
The artist’s narrative overlay contextualizes her bewildering and audacious photographs. Images spanning her career trace a single storyline, a universally relatable tragicomedy full of both humor and pathos.
Got to Go reveals the driving force that has propelled Fox Solomon to seek the bizarre and the beautiful over the decades. Throughout her career, Fox Solomon has devoted her work to the search for the dissonant chord within all of us, the off-note that bares itself from behind a mask of cultural norms and pretense. She is particularly drawn to individual efforts of survival against the barrage of circumstance, in far-flung locales or in one’s own home.
