Diane Rosenstein Gallery debuted “On Being Here,” a solo exhibition of photographs by Egyptian-American artist Amir Zaki on June 4, 2022. The exhibition runs through July 16, 2022. As always, remember to check with the gallery for up-to-date covid protocols and guidelines – (proof of vaccination and masks MAY be required).

Amir Zaki, Built in 1904. Damaged in 1913, 2021

The exhibition includes twenty-five color photographs that depict piers off the coast of California. This is the artist’s first solo show with the gallery.

Amir Zaki’s photographs exist as a digitally rendered space that is neither ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ – yet the intense visual clarity dispels any allegations of neutrality.  The color images in this show were created on location at California’s many piers, often in the early morning hours.

The exhibition coincides with the publication of a major survey monograph, Amir Zaki: Building + Becoming, published by X Artists’ Books and DopplerHouse Press (2022, Los Angeles).

On view: June 4, 2022 – July 16, 2022
