ANNA SHTEYNSHLEYGER | 26 Court
January 6 - February 18, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday, January 6, 6-9pm
In the gallery’s Waiting Room, Anna Shteynshleyger will exhibit a selection of photographs from her 2014-2016 series 26 Court. After a weekly therapy session, the artist found herself wandering through the halls of the office building, photographing the many doors belonging mostly to medical and legal practitioners. After about a year she had photographed each and every door of the building, resulting in 139 archival pigment prints. The artist’s Waiting Room installation will be the first time this series has been presented to the public.
