GoSee loves ... 'AMERICAN POLYCHRONIC' by Roe Ethridge (Mack Books, 2022)
AMERICAN POLYCHRONIC brings together over 400 eclectic, bizarre images captured over the past two decades. Here, the American photographer talks about growing up in the Atlanta suburbs and why he was drawn to "humanity in imperfection."

AMERICAN POLYCHRONIC presents the first comprehensive catalogue of Roe Ethridge’s work from 2000 to 2021, comprised of two interlocking threads of his celebrated photographic practice. Ethridge’s artistic and personal work is sequenced chronologically, interwoven with his commercial photography in chronological reverse, together forming a vibrant sequence of harmonies and dissonance, hits and B-sides. This long-form sequence moves fluidly between genres in the pursuit of a distinctive visual language - blending and playfully juxtaposing the realms of fine art, fashion imagery, and advertising with the everyday, personal, and generic. Ethridge explores how new visual experiences can be created through the reproduction and recombination of images, photographing and distorting the real as way of suggesting - or disrupting -the ideal.

With an essay by Jamieson Webster and a conversation between the artist and Antwaun Sargent.

DAVID ZWIRNER GALLERY presents Yayoi Kusamas Grand Central Madison Mosaic
Now Arriving: Yayoi Kusama’s Grand Central Madison Mosaic ! MTA Arts & Design has unveiled a spectacular new artwork by Yayoi Kusama commissioned for the Long Island Rail Road’s new Grand Central Madison terminal in New York. Expanding upon Kusama’s iconic 'My Eternal Soul' series, the 120-foot-long glass mosaic artwork, titled 'A Message of Love, Directly from My Heart unto the Universe' (2022), explores boldly colored lines and forms, and conveys messages central to Kusama’s oeuvre.

The artist told The New York Times that the train station venue inspired her to depict many different characters coming and going, adding, 'It could be you, it could be me.'

Yayoi Kusama's (b. 1929) work has transcended two of the most important art movements of the second half of the twentieth century: Pop art and Minimalism. Her highly influential career spans paintings, performances, room-size presentations, outdoor sculptural installations, literary works, films, fashion, design, and interventions within existing architectural structures, which allude at once to microscopic and macroscopic universes.

‘Love Letters to the Muse’ – Emma Summerton photographs her muses for the 2023 Pirelli Calendar
The 2023 Pirelli calendar is dedicated to women who shine a light in the darkness on their search for inspiration. It brings together 28 shots of 14 models portrayed in the dreamy signature style typical of Emma Summerton’s work. The choice of models was by no means random. Each has a close affinity with the muse they represented on the sets which were created in London and New York for the shoots. “In my shots, the borderline between the role that the models play and what they really are is not clearly defined, and everything blends together to create a magical realism,” the photographer explains on the Pirelli homepage. With the calendar, she would like to encourage viewers to open their minds and dream along with her.

The Australian photographer, who lives in London and New York, has long approached photography not merely as the act of taking a picture of a model, but as a dimensional exchange in which the women’s identity, passions and interests inform the image. We present you the thrilling making-of video here on GoSee, and more is available via PIRELLI.
