The Newsstand X MoMA New Photography 2015 November 03 2015, 4 Comments
So honored to have our photo-zine series 1000 MILES be part of the upcoming Ocean of Images: New Photography 2015 exhibit at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) as part of artist Lele Saveri's contribution of The Newsstand!
New Photography, MoMA’s longstanding exhibition series of recent work in photography, returns this fall in an expanded, biannual format. On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, New Photography is expanding to 19 artists and artist collectives from 14 countries, and includes works made specifically for this exhibition.
Probing the effects of an image-based post-Internet reality, Ocean of Images examines various ways of experiencing the world: through images that are born digitally, made with scanners or lenses in the studio or the real world, presented as still or moving pictures, distributed as zines, morphed into three-dimensional objects, or remixed online. The exhibition’s title refers to the Internet as a vortex of images, a site of piracy, and a system of networks. Ocean of Images presents bodies of work that critically redefine photography as a field of experimentation and intellectual inquiry, where digital and analog, virtual and real dimensions cross over. These artists explore contemporary photo-based culture, specifically focusing on connectivity, the circulation of images, information networks, and communication models.
Coinciding with the opening of the exhibition, MoMA will also launch an online platform featuring selections from the archive of the New Photography series, including documents and images from the series' 30-year history.

We are so humbled and honored to have our publication be included and exhibited alongside these fine artists as part of Lele Saveri's The Newsstand contribution to the exhibition!
Originally appearing at Opening Ceremony, The International Center of Photography & Hamburger Eyes before becoming SOLD OUT at each location, we still have a very limited amount of copies of the original 1000 MILES zine series left HERE.
In addition, you can find copies of a new dual-folio publication combining images and texts from all ten photo-zines in the series for sale at Bookdummypress HERE.
The exhibition at MoMA opens November 7, 2015 and runs until March 20, 2016.
