In our Jan/Feb photography collecting version of Who’s Hot and Who’s Not, expert appraiser Stephen Perloff noted that although Muzi Quawson is not yet 30, she’s been included in the most recent Tate Triennial and her prints are already a hot commodity. At Yossi Milo (who I’ve mentioned has a deserved reputation for bringing international rising stars to our shores) I’m looking forward to getting a closer look at Quawson’s work on Thursday, at her first solo U.S. show. The Duratran prints, from a documentary project about a young mother called Pull Back the Shade, will be displayed in lightboxes to emphasize their cinematic feel.
Speaking of the cinema, I’m also interested to see the About Face show going up at Keith de Lellis on Thursday. The vintage portraits of stage and screen stars recall an earlier incarnation of glamor and the deep ties between photography and movies, which is explored in depth in our March/April issue, due to hit newsstands any day.
