Craigie Horsfield, Larry Fink, and Christer Stromholm (May 17 - June 16, 2012)  
Marvelli Gallery is pleased to present The Blind Mirror, an exhibition of selected photographs by Craigie Horsfield, Larry Fink, and Christer Stromholm, May 17th through June 16th, 2012.

(b. 1949) lives and works in London. Horsfield is known primarily for his intimate photographs from the late 1980s, but since the early 1990s, he has focused on social projects which are often collaborative, inter-relational, and involve a variety of medium including sound, video, and installation. Recently the artist has produced a series of wall size, photo-based tapestries, which add cinematic dimension and texture to his photographic work. His work has been exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Documenta Kassel, Centre Georges Pompidou, and the Ydessa Hendeles Foundation. Two major catalogues have been published on the artist: Craigie Horsfield: Relation and Craigie Horsfield: Confluence and Consequence. The artist will exhibit at SFMOMA and the 18th Biennale of Sydney this summer and at the National Gallery in London in the fall. The artist's first exhibition at Marvelli Gallery was February 4th through March 29th, 2012; and his next major solo exhibition will be at the Kunsthalle Basel, opening June 8th, 2012.

LARRY FINK (b. 1941) lives and works in Martins Creek, Pennsylvania. From his early beatnik portraits of the 1950s, to his series Social Graces, which contrasted fashionable, wealthy Manhattanites and working-class families from rural Pennsylvania, to his documentary style portraits of celebrities at LA parties and politicians on the campaign trail, Fink has consistently captured what he considers the grotesque and sensuous theatre of life and infused it with social commentary. Fink has had solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the San Francisco Museum of Art, and the Kunstmuseum Dusseldorf. Books on the artist's work include: Social Graces (no longer in print); Boxing; a second publication of Social Graces, which features images of that time never published before; Larry Fink, a small retrospective book; and a book of music images Somewhere There's Music. Marvelli Gallery will exhibit a major retrospective of the artist's work this fall, 2012.

(1918-2002), born in Stockholm, is one of the most prominent figures in the history of European photography. Highly individualistic and difficult to categorize, his work is marked by the constant presence of death and the inevitability of the finite. Stromholm's early work consists of sharply-focused stark compositions, and his later work of street-photography style portraits, such as his famous series of transvestites featured in the well-known book, recently rereleased, Les Amies de Place Blanche. Stromholm's work has been exhibited at the Jeu de Paume and the Centre Pompidou, Paris, the Nationalmuseum, Stockholm, and the Barbican Centre, London, and he was granted The Hasselblad Award in Photography in 1997. Marvelli Gallery was the first to show his work in New York in the exhibtion City Diaries with Anders Petersen in 2010. Stromholm's upcoming solo exhibition at the International Center for Photography opens May 18th, 2012, and the Fotografiska Museet in Stockholm will show a comprehensive retrospective of his work this fall, 2012.
