Tinsquo's curatorial project, Adjacent to Life presents Aspiration, a two-part exhibit of Michael Sean Edwards' photographs.

past future past: the East Village 1978-1980 features images from Mr. Edwards' recent book of the same title. The works document the eye of an "entranced" young photographer, serving as a harbinger of the artist who would emerge and a record of an iconic era of the East Village.

His newest and ongoing body of work, The Tension of Reflexive Identity, finds the photographer performatively shooting consecutive shots of 35mm film that together form a single image exploring notions of identity and the transcending or maintenance of boundaries.

Aspiration is Mr. Edwards third show at the Adjacent to Life pop-up gallery in Ninth Street Espresso (341 E. 10th Street at Ave B, New York City). It runs through December 19.

Urban Extracts at Adjacent to Life

Tinsquo's curatorial project, Adjacent To Life, presents Urban Extracts: Photographs by Matthew Borenstein.

Matthew Borenstein's photographs are a meditation on the beauty and transience of materiality. Shadows and raking light assume the solidity of architecture while projecting a destiny of increasingly acute angles, twilight and the promise of tomorrow.

Urban Extracts runs through November 14 at the Adjacent to Life pop-up gallery housed in Ninth Street Espresso (341 E. 10th Street at Ave B, NYC).

Traces at Adjacent to Life

Kaitlin_Pomerantz_Mirror.jpg

Tinsquo's curatorial project, Adjacent To Life, presents Traces: Paintings and Prints by Kaitlin Pomerantz.

Absence fills Kaitlin Pomerantz's paintings, implying tales, lives and loves removed, relocated or forgotten. What remains is an arena of opaque nostalgia that also reveals a witty parallel narrative of Painting's resilience. With earnest irony, Pomerantz's act of painting a vacated picture asserts Painting's continued, albeit problematized, mysterious power: absence becomes a presence.

Traces runs through October 10 at the Adjacent to Life pop-up gallery housed in Ninth Street Espresso (341 E. 10th Street at Ave B, NYC).
