ALEX PRAGER FEATURED IN NEW PHOTOGRAPHY 2010 AT MOMA, OPENING SEPTEMBER 29TH
Several large-scale photographs and a short film by gallery artist Alex Prager will feature in MOMA's prestigious New Photography 2010, opening to the public on September 29th.
"New Photography 2010 presents four artists—Roe Ethridge, Elad Lassry, Alex Prager, and Amanda Ross-Ho—whose photographs mine the inexhaustible reservoir of images found in print media and cinema.
...Prager takes her cues from pulp fiction and the fashion images of Guy Bourdin to construct filmic narratives starring women disguised under synthetic wigs, dramatic makeup, and retro polyester attire. Infusing the seductive language of film and advertising with a touch of sly conceptualism, the artists included in New Photography 2010 explore the relationship between straight and constructed photograph, image and picture."
