T.W. Li and Whitney Faile: IN(DI)VISIBLE

Opening November 20
Exhibiting Through December 10

Noble & Superior Projects is proud to present "IN(DI)VISIBLE" featuring the work of T.W. Liand Whitney Faile.

TW Li's work can't leave you alone. His images are as striking and visceral as they are conceptually rich and memorable. His two newest videos "After You" and "Self (Involved) Portrait" speak from opposing sides of a discourse on public space and social behavior, contrasting one another until the viewer becomes a prism, a result of the combination and reflecting all the affect that can be found in this work.

Whitney Faile is a photographer and artist who came from a trip to LA with a distinct vision in her mind. "A Brief History of the World Part I: A Bedtime Story" is the embodiment of the image the city left on her. On one hand, it is a psychedelic, free associative dive into a world of symbolism and color theory. Simultaneously, figures once photographed in a decaying urban environment, are now re-imagined as living in a utopian landscape rich with image and juxtapositions as disparate as they are practical.

Review for DOUBLE FANTASY (via Bad At Sports)

Choice words (from Lauren Vallone):

"I did appreciate the dialog between Lozano’s work and Brock’s. There was delicate connection between where to place or locate the gaze in the photographic as well as an extreme emphasis on the gaze in the larger than life face in the installation. In the conversation between the work, Lozano’s work felt much more secure in a time and place (post-AIDS epidemic) while Brock’s work felt very contemporary it did not feel deeply attached to a history."

"More so than the show itself, chatting with Nixon and Bobilin really excited me about the future of the space. They want to focus on two artists at a time; one working in a way that must be “experienced” (...)and the other in a way that is able to be easily distributed(...) I think this could be a very dynamic experience(...)"

Ivan Lozano & Kate Brock: Double Fantasy

Opening October 23
Exhibiting through November 18
Noble & Superior Projects is proud to present our inaugural exhibition "Double Fantasy" featuring the work of Ivan Lozano and Kate Brock.  

Ivan Lozano's work draws from parallel histories of disco, gay culture and the AIDS epidemic, often bringing these elements to an uncanny intersection that illuminate a thread of posthuman theory and spiritual sublime that runs underneath them all.
Kate Brock's BAGHEAD series of photos highlights the shape of the body and forces the viewer to imagine each of her characters through the prism of an irreconcilable anonymity.

More about Ivan's work here!
