I ❤️ AARON SISKIND

I ❤ Aaron Siskind, on view now at Elizabeth Houston Gallery through August 17, captures the textures, forms, lines and shapes the artist uncovered in the cast-off objects, barren walls, graffiti and signage of cities near and far.

Daniel Coburn’s Becoming a Specter, on view at Elizabeth Houston Gallery from June 6 to August 17, traffics in these paradoxes, teasing out the tension below the surfaces of our most intimate conceptions of ourselves and others.

The Photography Show 2018 Presented by AIPAD

For the gallery’s second AIPAD exhibition, Elizabeth Houston will be presenting the works of Aaron Siskind, in addition to the photographs of Melanie Willhide. Embodying movement and rhythm within the frame, both photographers actively challenged the visual norms of their era, creating work that continues to stand outside the defining limits of space and time.
