Yancey Richardson : Andrew Moore : Whiskey Point and Other Tales


New work by photographer Andrew Moore is on view at Yancey Richardson from November 16, 2023, through January 6, 2024. The exhibition, Whiskey Point and Other Tales, delves into the dazzling scenes and moody vistas of the storied Hudson Valley of New York. Through his vividly colored, large-scale photographs, Andrew Moore is known for investigating the intersections of historical moments in the U.S. and abroad, documenting the natural and built landscapes in places such Detroit, the American South, the Great Plains, New York City, Cuba, and Bosnia. Whiskey Point refers to a strip of land that juts out into the Hudson River in Ulster County where the surrounding soil was once cleared for brick production. Today it is part of a new park named after African American abolitionist and suffragette Sojourner Truth who was born a slave in Ulster County in 1797.

From the mythological tales of the Indigenous Lenape and the Norse Viking sagas to the Hudson River School painters, the Hudson Valley region possesses a magical, yet familiar attraction.

Moore presents a layered approach to photography and storytelling by interweaving narrative with documentary and personal experiences with historical and generational events. The work reveals different kinds of lineages, such as how artists borrow from and remake art history.
