Top Exhibitions Opening this Week in New York (December 9-14)

By Olivia Swider

December 13, 2013

WEDNESDAY

“Merge Visible” at Horton Gallery
December 12 – January 26
Opening: December 12, 7-9PM
55-59 Chrystie Street
Merge Visible references the Photoshop command that collapses active layers into one. Along with its correlates—Merge Down and Flatten—the command Merge Visible is an image editor’s ninja move: a swift gesture that, while yielding no apparent changes, discards what’s hidden from view, paring down multiple levels of content into a single flat image. Merge Visible features Trudy Benson, Laura Miller, Daniel Gordon, John Houck, Terry Haggerty, Susie Rosmarin, Michael Staniak, Keegan McHargue and Ryan Johnson.

FRIDAY

Robert Mapplethorpe: “Saints and Sinners” at Sean Kelly
December 14 – January 25
Opening: December 13, 6-8PM
475 Tenth Avenue
The fifty-four images that comprise Saints and Sinners, some of which have rarely been exhibited, afford the viewer an opportunity to find personally meaningful connections in the work. Mapplethorpe himself deftly subverted any moral implications by presenting his subject matter in an objective, even classical manner, putting the onus on the viewer to draw their own conclusions.

Slater Bradley: “A Point Beyond the Tree” at Sean Kelly
December 14 – January 25
Opening: December 13, 6-8PM
475 Tenth Avenue
The photographs in the exhibition belong to a series of intimate portraits of Alina, Bradley’s muse over a two-year period beginning in 2011, in which she is presented as his idealized woman. Alina is also featured in Sequoia, a two-channel video that will be installed in the lower gallery. The film includes footage from Chris Marker’s La Jetée, the 1962 French science fiction film, Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo from 1958, an Bradley’s 2013 homage to the Marker film, she was my la jetée.
