For the month of May, the Library presents Daniel Kazimierski: PORTRAITS. There will be an opening reception on Sunday, May 5th, from 2:00 – 4:00 PM. All are welcome.
Mr. Kazimierski’s series of 24 photographs is a response to José Ortega y Gasset’s 1925 essay, “The Dehumanization of Art,” in which he states, “Modern art divides the public into two classes, those who understand it and those who do not understand it – that is to say, those who are artists and those who are not.” Taken in Toronto, Canada, the exhibit juxtaposes portraits of “artists” with “those who are not.”
Born in Poland and now living in Piermont, Daniel Kazimierski has exhibited and taught in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Italy, Germany, Demark, and Poland.
This is the first United States showing of these selenium-toned gelatin silver prints.
