Guys & Dolls:
Saturday November 17th – January
Opening reception: Saturday November 17th, from 5 to 8pm
DEAN PROJECT is pleased to present "Guys & Dolls: Seeing
Stars" a two person exhibition of photographs by Rose Hartman
and Holger Keifel. Opening reception with the artists Saturday November
17th from 5-8pm.
With photographs dating from the 1970’s through today Rose
Hartman and Holger Keifel have been documenting revealing moments
of personalities from two very different arenas: social celebrities
and the world of professional boxing. The photographs in this show
include world known figures, such as Jackie O, Donatella Versace,
Naomi Campbell, Oscar de la Hoya, Evander Holyfield, and Don King.
These seemingly diverse portraits displayed together in one-room
raise questions about social class and status in contemporary society
while also presenting us with a different view of beauty and power.
Rose and Holger's photos also manage to capture successful individuals
in intimate and telling poses that go behind the idealized image
represented to the public. These groups of photographs are images
from popular culture, history, and the personal quest of individuals
who through personal dedication and achievements have contributed
to the shaping of our current society.
Both photographers have had their work published and exhibited extensively worldwide.
Rose Hartman's work has been featured in publications including the New York
Times, Harper's Bazaar, Vanity Fair, Vogue, W magazine; she has also exhibited
in group shows including The Museum of the City of New York, The Patterson Museum,
and The Whitney Museum.
Holger Keifel’s work has been published in Playboy,
The New York Times Magazine, Der Spiegel, The Observer Sports Monthly and his
work has been exhibited at The Corcoran Gallery, The Butler Museum of Contemporary
Art, Florida Atlantic University, his work is in several museum collections including
The Museum of the City of New York.
