Ryan Mcginley: I Now Where the Summer Goes


I Know Where the Summer Goes

McGinley’s photographs are included in the collections of The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, and many others. The 30 year-old artist has had solo exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of Art and at PS1 in New York, in Spain at the MUSAC, and last year mounted an ambitious public project in conjunction with the Kunsthalle in Vienna. This is McGinley’s second solo show at Team. Team is open from Tuesday through Saturday, 10am to 6pm. For further information and/or photographs, please call 212 279 9219.


he New York Times and Art in America Team is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by the New York-based photographer Ryan McGinley. Entitled I Know Where the Summer Goes, the exhibition will run from the 3rd of April through the 3rd of May 2008. Team Gallery is located at 83 Grand Street, cross streets Wooster and Greene, on the ground floor. Ryan McGinley’s “snapshots” have been evolving steadily since his guerilla show at 420 West Broadway in 2000. In the intervening eight years he has moved away from an artistic practice that was the soul of casual and towards an elaborated production schedule that raises the ante on “being there.” McGinley has gone from being perceived as the hottest young photographer in town to

being considered a serious artist with a rare gift for creating enduring color photographs — photographs that show us the best of youth. The title of this exhibition, taken from an early B-side by Belle &

McGinley had chosen a very specific itinerary that would bring his troop through the incredible range of landscapes that are available across the US and carefully planned a battery of activities, sometimes orchestrating the use of The inspirational images for the project were culled from the kinds special effects. He has always been quite fond of fireworks and fog of amateur photography that appeared in nudist magazines during machines and in this new work they play a major role. the 60s and early 70s. McGinley would sit with his models and look through all of the ephemera of the period that he had collected, discussing with them the mood that he was hoping to capture that day. 150,000 photographs, he arduously narrowed down the body of work to some fifty images, the best of which are on display here at the gallery.

Sebastian, is more than just a piece of poetic musing. McGinley does, in fact, know where his summers go. In the summer of 2007, for example, he traversed the United States with sixteen models and three assistants, shooting 4,000 rolls of film. From the resulting

The very artificial constructedness of the project allows for situations in which the models can both perform and be caught off guard. The resultant pictures of nude young men and women playing and living in the great outdoors are innocent yet erotic, casual yet calculated.

MacDowell will honor Nan Goldin


he MacDowell Colony plans to present its 53rd Edward MacDowell Medal to renowned photographer Nan Goldin on Sunday, Aug. 12. Goldin is known for her provocative and frank autobiographical photos that often portray intensely personal moments and scenes from her life and those of her friends and family. “This is one of the greatest honors I’ve received in my life,” Goldin said in a statement. “To be named among the artists who have made the most profound marks of the past five decades is humbling.” Since 1960, the MacDowell Medal has been awarded annually to an individual artist who has made an outstanding contribution to his or her field. The award is rotated among the artistic disciplines practiced at MacDowell, one of the nation’s leading artist residency programs, which is located on 450 acres of woods in Peterborough. Past recipients include Robert Frank, Edward Hopper, Georgia O’Keefe, Leonard Bernstein, Merce Cunningham, Robert Frost and Edward Albee. Author Michael Chabon, a MacDowell fellow and chairman of the Colony board of directors, as well as writer and critic Luc Sante, will speak at the public ceremony to honor Goldin. Sante was chairman of this year’s medalist selection committee.

“Nan Goldin’s photographs of her life, her friends and her family — unflinchingly honest, nakedly emotional, sometimes brutal, but most often tender — redefined the autobiographical use of photography and influenced everyone who has come after her. In addition, her use of the slideshow as a medium just about constituted a medium unto itself, halfway between still photography and cinema. Along the way, her approach to love, gender and sexuality has forever altered the depiction of woman and gay and transgender people,” Sante said in a statement.

The Medal Day ceremony is set to begin at 12:15 p.m. Aug. 12 at the Colony on High Street. Medal Day is the one day of the year the colony is open to the public. Attendees can bring their own lunch to stay after the ceremony and enjoy a picnic on the grounds. Picnic lunch baskets sold at the event can be pre-ordered at macdowellcolony.org.
