Fridman Gallery is honored to present a solo exhibition of the iconic composer, experimental filmmaker, and photographer Phill Niblock. Working Photos compiles still photography, video, and minimalist sound works created all over the world throughout his six-decade career.
The exhibition begins with Niblock’s film of Arthur Russell performing at Experimental Intermedia in 1985, and three series of photographs: China 88 (China, 1988), Boatyards (Brazil, 1974), and Streetcorners in the South Bronx (1979).
In the main gallery space, the two-channel slide installation Light Patterns is juxtaposed with Anecdotes from Childhood, works created between 1985 and 1992. Downstairs, Niblock’s musical compositions score multiple series of photographs from the past five decades.
