Type A at the Gund Gallery, Kenyon College
Type A, Peter Hay Halpert Fine Art’s latest addition to the gallery’s roster of artists, premiered a show of new photogravures this week.
Peter Hay Halpert Fine Art will show the work in New York in the fall of 2019.
Type A, is an artistic collaboration between Adam Ames (American, b. 1969) and Andrew Bordwin, (American, b. 1964).
Focusing on the ways men compete, work and play, Type A exposes social and psychological imbalances. In recent years, Type A has focused on urgent socio-political issues: definition of territory and authority, perpetuation of fear and safety. Their practice now includes unconventional materials, experiential performance, and unorthodox means of distribution. As contemporary society has become increasingly fragmented and unpredictable, so too has Type A’s methodology.
Menace represents an extension of the exhibition program Peter Hay Halpert Fine Art first established with Galina Kurlat’s Shadow Play. Each exhibition, in its own way, explores the figure in photography, challenging and enlarging definitions of what a figure in a picture looks like, how a portrait functions.
