Dot Fiftyone Gallery is pleased to announce two simultaneous exhibitions “The Skin of the Cities” by the Swiss photographer Gian Paolo Minelli in gallery one, and “Selections from Something Vast” by Miami based Michelle Weinberg.
For Minelli, photography is an instrument for investigating the people and places making up his world. He alternates within a twin-theme register: portrait/self-portrait and urban reality. Minelli has over the years and with the rigour of a scientific researcher traced out a sample of contemporary society in which ethics and aesthetics are closely linked, highlighting the typical contradictions and contrasts.
Michelle Weinberg creates works in painting and collage, designs rugs, tiles, mosaic and paint murals, and produces art for architecture and public spaces. Her imagery inhabits a “Pretend Dimension” in which elastic perspectives, personalized geometries, and fictitious architectures elaborate stage-set like narratives. Her works in all media are conceived as vivid backdrops for human activity.
