    Closing: Tuesday, December 20 | 6-9 p.m.
    Social Photography II is the second installment of a carriage trade benefit exhibition focusing on the relatively new medium of cell phone photography. Emphasizing no particular theme beyond how the cell phone camera is most often used, both artists and non-artists were invited to submit images from their phones and email them to carriage trade. The images will be printed on 5” x 7” paper and installed in a grid in the gallery. As cell phone cameras become more ubiquitous, their function (...)

    POP Patriotism, curated by Peter Scott at Momenta Art in September 2002, is being re-presented at carriage trade from September 22 to November 13, 2011. A note on the re-presentation of POP Patriotism in 2011: In the panicked days, weeks, and months following September 11, 2001, many Americans were too overwhelmed to be aware of the way in which their fear was being appropriated by certain factions within government and business to further a set of goals, often having little to do with (...)

    No one seems to be sure what the decline of modernism’s cultural influence, beginning sometime in the 1950’s and 60’s, has led to. The return of narrative and ornament in the art and architecture of the 1970’s suggested an effort to break with the immediate past, but the privileging of rationalism as a guiding social order evident in the idea of markets finding their perfect equilibrium continues to dominate economic discourse, despite the occasionally irrational results. While architects like (...)

  • Jef Geys
    Woodward Avenue

    February 19 - April 3, 2011
    Friday-Sunday, 1-6pm
    carriage trade is very pleased to present Woodward Avenue by Jef Geys, a project first developed and exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. This exhibition is a variation of Geys’ Quadra Medicinale, at the Belgian Pavilion of the 53rd Venice Biennale, a collaboration of four of the artist’s friends who collected and archived “urban flora” in Brussels, Moscow, Villeurbanne, and New York. For Woodward Avenue, Geys asked the ethnobotanist Ina Vandebroek to collect weeds found on 12 (...)

  • Social Photography

    A Benefit Exhibition of Cell Phone Photographs
    January 19 - February 5, 2011
    Wednesday - Sunday, 1-6 pm
    Reception: Saturday, January 29, 6-9 pm
    Organized to benefit upcoming programming at carriage trade, Social Photography is an exhibition focusing on the relatively new medium of cell phone photography. As cell phone cameras become more ubiquitous, their function continues to evolve. Encompassing the varied roles of snapshots, visual notes, discrete picture taking, or the immediacy of citizen journalism, the cell phone camera lacks the intentionality of a point-and-shoot, resulting in a more direct recording of the “everyday.” (...)

    The exhibition Another Green World intends to draw parallels between the genre of landscape and the current preoccupation with "green" in popular culture. While the romanticism of 19th century landscape tradition linked the sublimity of nature with the existence of God, it also lent inspiration for westward expansion and the underlying impulse of "man’s" dominion over nature. This mixture of the profound with the pragmatic speaks to a fundamental contradiction in society’s relationship to (...)

    While the genre of portraiture tends to feature clearly defined subjects, the portrait show Mistaken Identity focuses instead on the uncertainties of facial recognition and how misperception might affect behavior in everyday experience. Linking the concept of belief to what we can “know” about an individual’s face, the exhibition explores identification as a process influenced by the particular circumstances of any given encounter. Commonly associated with detective stories and courtroom (...)
