Lindsey White is a special type of artist. Comfortable in photography, video, sculpture and installation, her work poignantly exposes those curious and lovely moments we witness in private but have no way to articulate. Her images can reveal caverns of emotion without narrative. Her photographs and the installations in which they are sometimes placed use the best of both their medium’s history in conceptual art as well as the current zeitgeist to push viewer in and out of the contextualization of the most involved art dialogs and the sweetest connections between each of us.
Where: Baer Ridgway Exhibitions, 172 Minna Street between 3rd and 2nd
When: June 19 – July 14 Tuesday – Saturday 11am – 6pm Opening Reception: Saturday, June 19, 4-7pm
Baer Ridgway Exhibitions, one of the smartest galleries in San Francisco, is opening Lindsey White’s exhibition Equivalent Exposure showcasing White’s photography, video and sculpture. She already has an extensive exhibition history including shows at Southern Exposure, Kala Institute of Art and the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, but Equivalent Exposure is White’s first solo show at a commercial gallery since her show at San Francisco based Ping Pong Gallery in early 2009.
If you want to believe in art making again, go to Baer Ridgway and see Lindsey White’s work. The press release sums it up perfectly, “Her manipulations of materials and settings, by both analog and digital means, mixed with a keen eye for coincidence make for playful yet haunting images of the not so mundane everyday.”
White inserts her own vulnerabilities into her work as much as her confidence in her personal discovery of daily life. The exhibition will certainly leave you open and ready for Ms. White’s next show.
