De Soto Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition by Connie Samaras, “Last Contact: Spaceport America and Edge of Twilight.” Culled from two recent bodies of work, these photographs spawn a nuanced view of each other.
See image: Left: Edge of Twilight No. 5, 2011-13, archival pigment print, 24 x 30 in., edition of 5. Right: Fire Rescue Facility (Eyelash), 2010, archival pigment print, 24 x 30 in., edition of 5.
Spaceport America (2010-11) portrays the quixotically futuristic and simultaneously boarded-up structures of the world’s first commercial space station. Located in the artist’s home state of New Mexico—between towns with names that seem destined for fiction, Truth or Consequences and Las Cruces—Samaras’ images of this hub are framed to underscore the everyday present in this future imaginary. In contrast, the works from Edge of Twilight (2010-present) seem to pulsate with an otherworldliness.
On view: March 29 – April 26
What: Opening reception
Where: De Soto Gallery, 1350 Abbot Kinney Blvd. Venice, Ca 90291
When: 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm
