Alex Prager in New Photography 2010 at the Museum of Modern Art
Alex Prager has been selected as one of four artists to be included in the prestigious New Photography 2010 at MOMA, opening September 29, 2010. This year's showcase of outstanding young talent "presents four artists—Roe Ethridge, Elad Lassry, Alex Prager, and Amanda Ross-Ho—whose photographs, taken in the real world and made in the studio, mine the inexhaustible reservoir of images found in print media, television, and cinema.
…Prager takes her cues from pulp fiction and the fashion images of Guy Bourdin to construct filmic narratives staring women disguised under synthetic wigs, dramatic makeup, and retro polyester attire. Infusing the seductive language of film and advertising with a touch of subversive conceptualism, the artists included in this edition of New Photography explore the relationship between image and picture."
