Ben Ruggiero unleashes his new exhibition After Icebergs with a Painter at testsite! The title of the show references the romantic impulse realized by the painter Frederic Edwin Church in his Arctic paintings. Ruggiero’s series of photographs examines the intentionality and the pursuit of the exotic in Hudson River School paintings and considers how those impulses inform representation and materiality in contemporary photographic practice and aesthetics.
