JADE DOSKOW: Jade Doskow’s World Fairs

Jade Doskow’s World Fairs
November 9 – December 22, 2017
Opening Reception: Thursday, November 9, 5:30 – 7:00 pm
Artist’s Talk: 6:30 pm

Since 2007, Jade Doskow has been photographing the remaining architecture, art, and landscaping of international world’s fairs. These magnificent, temporary events left behind international architectural icons, urban infrastructure, and large-scale public art. However, there often was a lack of planning as to how to bring these unusual sites into a proactive contemporary use, and as a result, there is a surreal utopian/dystopian quality to much of what is left behind. In Doskow’s photographs the resulting images illustrate sites that run the gamut from iconic to abandoned, from functional to strangely repurposed—including such structures as the Space Needle, Eiffel Tower, and New York State Pavilion—positing complex questions as to the nature of what we choose to preserve or discard within our shared urban spaces.
