To the Brewery! A Tour of Liste Basel 2018 in 33 Photographs

Em Rooney, one of the stars of the current “New Photography” show at the Museum of Modern Art, has sent over a number of new photo constructions for the booth of Bodega gallery, which also just did a great solo show with her in New York. Most are wall hung—photos (of a young girl playing with someone who might be her mother) fashioned together with metal—but there’s a gorgeous table assemblage (“BEEN DARLING,” its metal wiring reads), too, and a portfolio of prints sitting on the dealers’ desk. These works seem to harbor deep memories that perhaps reveal themselves slowly. I’d like to spend some time with them.
