Living Portraits features work by Jon Goldman and Robin Radin
Neighborhoods and villages are technically defined by geographic borders, but socially they are attributed with personas that have communal and political significance. They can change and evolve over time, but ultimately are tied to the history and implications of their location. Both of the artists in this exhibition employ their work as a means of documenting, celebrating, and asking questions about the geographic communities they are embedded in. Looking deeply at a single neighborhood or village can provide a new perspective on the bonds, tensions, and value inherent in how communities of people form and evolve. These two distinctly different bodies of work complement one another via their shared exploration and documentation of place and community.
