Theater Series | Hiroshi Sugimoto | Socks Studio

Starting in the late 1970s, Hiroshi Sugimoto took pictures of cinemas interiors and drive-ins with the aim of encapsulate the whole lenght of a movie in a single shot. He left the camera shutters open throughout the running of a movie and the glowing screen of the cinemas was left as a trace on each take. A somehow uncanny light resonates in the dark cinema halls. At a further glance, this central light ethereally underlines the rich architectural details of the theater interiors. You might want to confront Sugimoto’s work with Michael Wesely’s, a photographer that uses to take photographs featuringi  3 years long exposures: read “The passing of time“, (on Socks).

"Hello.  My name is Luke Skywalker.  You killed my father.  Prepare to die."

"Never go up against a Mandalorian when death is on the line!" *immediately falls into Sarlacc pit*

"Bye, boys!  Have fun storming the Death Star!"

"Wampas Of Unusual Size?  I don’t think they exist."

"Do you want me to send you back to where you were?  Unemployed, on Hoth?"

"It just so happens that Obi-Wan here is only mostly dead."

"Give us the access code." "What access code?" "Chewie, tear his arms off." "Ohhh you mean this access code!"

"I could give you my word as a Corellian…" "No good. I’ve known too many Corellians"

"Why can’t I see?" "You’ve been mostly-frozen all day."

That day, she was amazed to discover that when he was saying “I know”, what he meant was, “I love you.” 

"Why do you wear that black mask? Were you burned on Mustafar, or something like that?" "Oh no, it’s just that they’re terribly comfortable. I think everyone will be wearing them in the future."

"Luke doesn’t get eaten by the rancor at this time. "What?” “The rancor doesn’t get him. I’m explaining to you because you look nervous.”

<3 Having a sad day this cheered me up

AK Historypin of the Week
Beverly Pepper Exhibition (Fall 1969), Albright-Knox Art Gallery

Participants using the Historypin website and mobile app on supported devices can explore photographs and related content about numerous historic sites and buildings around Buffalo. Every week, we will feature a pinned location from the Albright-Knox’s Historypin channel and provide detailed information and archival photographs about the site. This week’s pin is the 1969 Beverly Pepper exhibition at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.

***
In late September of 1969, an exhibition of twenty sculptures and a group of drawings by Beverley Pepper (American, born 1924), organized by Jan van der Marck of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, opened at the Albright-Knox. From September 30 through November 2, the exhibition Beverly Pepper was installed, under the supervision of the artist, in the Sculpture Garden, on the Elmwood Avenue Terrace, and in the 1905 Knox Building.

The exhibition originally began at Marlbrough-Gerson Gallery, New York, in February 1969. The show then traveled to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, and finally made its way to the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in September 1969.

One of the artworks displayed near the Elmwood Avenue entrance of the museum is Zig-Zag,1967 (the second piece from the left in the above picture). The sculpture was acquired after the exhibition and is located on the museum’s campus today, in a different location on the same side of the grounds.
