TO SEE: History’s Shadow

image/jpeg icon

History’s Shadow is the first show of American artist David Maisel. The show features images of x-rays taken of antique sculptures from time he spent at the Getty Research Institute. In both the process of making these images as well presenting them Maisel engages in conversations of the transformation of material and the legacy of memory. The images themselves have a spectral quality to them: the soft white outlines of objects are striking against a black background.
