Experimental Photos Pass the Acid Test

05.28.09 Will Sherman

Like an arty upscale porn magazine, a new exhibition of experimental photos challenges “the proliferation of glossy, overemphatic, staged images.” Tomorrow night, “Palomar: Experimental Photography” opens at Marvelli Gallery in Chelsea, featuring artist investigations into atypical photo techniques that sometimes challenge the definition of photography altogether. The group show opens tomorrow from 6 to 8 PM and is on view through June 27 at 526 West 26th Street, 2nd Floor. Click the images above for a preview of the experimental work.
