Last winter Howard Greenberg Gallery contacted Stephen Shore with an unusual request: Would he be interested in curating an exhibition for the gallery that included work by his photography students at Bard College? Shore answered with a resounding, “yes,” and the resulting collaboration pairs works by seven of Shore’s recent graduates with photographs by renowned artists from the gallery’s archives.

“Stephen Shore is a bridge connecting contemporary photography with the history of photography,” said Howard Greenberg of the celebrated artist who is both an important part of contemporary photography and photo history. 

Works by the Bard graduates—Jasmine Clarke, Madison Emond, Briauna Falk, Vanessa Kotovich, Jackson Siegal, Naomi Zahler, and Ying Jing Zheng—are paired with photographs by Dave Heath, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Lisette Model, Frederick Sommer, Stephen Shore, Joseph Sudek, and Minor White from Howard Greenberg Gallery’s extensive holdings.
