By the Sea

June 19–July 31, 2003

Opening Reception

Thursday, June 19, 2003, 6:00–8:00 pm

Yossi Milo Gallery is pleased to announce By The Sea, a group show which will run from Thursday, June 19 until Thursday, July 31, 2003, with an opening reception on Thursday, June 19 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.

By The Sea concentrates on images of people at the water's edge engaged in a variety of activities. The sea has long been a place for solitude and contemplation as well as a place to gather for leisure and play. Works in By The Sea range from the blurry, emotional images by Bill Jacobson, to the sharp stillness of Rineke Dijkstra's beach portraits. The pieces in the exhibition reveal many ways to inhabit the beach, from the singular quietness of Richard Misrach to the broad masses gathered in Massimo Vitali's beach scene.

Artists featured in the exhibition include Virginia Beahan & Laura McPhee, Wynn Bullock, Rineke Dijkstra, Stephen DiRado, Morris Engel, Mitch Epstein, Sally Gall, Ralph Gibson, Burt Glinn, David Goldes, Bill Jacobson, Simen Johan, Justin Kimball, Herbert List, Gillian Laub, Achim Lippoth, Loretta Lux, Joel Meyerowitz, Greg Miller, Wayne Miller, Richard Misrach, Lisette Model, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Martin Munkacsi, Marvin Newman, Martin Parr, Frank Paulin, Melissa Ann Pinney, Richard Renaldi, Vittorio Ronconi, Bob Shamis, Larry Silver, Eve Sonneman, Arthur Tress, Beatrice Valdes-Paz, and Massimo Vitali.
