Mark Morrisroe: From This Moment On at Artists Space (38 Green Street, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10013). March 9 – May 1, 2011. Opening Reception: Saturday, March 5, 6 – 8pm.
Artists Space puts together two to three great exhibitions each year of emerging artists or those who have slid under the art world’s radar. The upcoming exhibition of Mark Morrisroe will be no exception. His photographs depict “intimate and at times deviant moments,” ultimately documenting the bygone era of 1980s New York. He often used Polaroids, “while also experimenting with the photographic process, creating layered and hand-painted prints, photograms and cyanotypes.”
