ON CURRENT EXHIBIT
Arthur Tress has four of his images from his Tao of Physics series in the exhibition currently at the de Young Museum of Fine Arts of San Francisco. The show is entitled "Towards Abstraction: Photographs and Photograms" and runs until November 15th. The de Young can be found in Golden Gate Park at 50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive. Just as abstraction has played a vital role in the history of modernist painting and sculpture, so too has it found expression in works by leading photographers of the 20th and 21st centuries. "Toward Abstraction" also features the work of Edward Weston, Arthur Siegel, Harry Callahan, Lee Friedlander, Imogen Cunningham, and Robert Mapplethorpe.
Tress also has 13 of his photographs in "Reality Revisited: Photography from the Moderna Museet Collection". This exhibition, presented in Stockholm at Sweden's top contemporary art museum until September 20th, focuses on a cross-section of work from the 1970s and discusses how photography relates to questions of form and content, subjectivity and objectivity, art and politics. In addition to photographs by Tress, work by Larry Clark, Ralph Gibson, Irina Ionesco, Duane Michals, Melissa Shook and others will be shown. The exhibition will also present work by Swedish photographers Eva Klasson, Anders Petersen and Christer Strömholm.

Lisa Holden has her work included in an exhibition called, "Change", which is being held from August 8-September 5 in conjunction with the Edinburgh Art Festival. A private preview will be held on August 7th at 7 pm. The show will be at Art's Complex, St. Margaret's House, 151 London Road, Edinburgh, and will be open to the public from 11 am-5 pm. The exhibition will feature 20 young international artists, who have created work on one theme: "Change"--combining multiple disciplines, such as drawing, photography, painting, sculpture, mixed media, installation, illustration, animation and textile design. The exhibition will show a wide range of international contemporary art. "Change" is collaborative project between the Berlin-based group Nekojuice and Edinburgh's Perennial Art.
