“The Party’s Over”
An Exhibition by Lisa Kereszi, MFA ’00
Yancey Richardson Gallery is pleased to present The Party’s Over, an exhibition of new and recent work by photographer Lisa Kereszi, marking the artist’s fourth solo exhibition at the gallery. Seen as a follow-up to the artist’s Fun and Games
series, the color landscapes and interiors in The Party’s Over
depict places of recreation long past their prime, together creating a poignant metaphor for the difficult economic climate of the times.
Continuing her investigation of escapist and fantastical spaces, Kereszi has trained her eye on the gritty, abandoned sites of former amusement parks, strip clubs, theaters, and other entertainment locales. The works offer subtle visual hints of a once happier existence, using windows and reflections, for example, as metaphorical portals to escape a reality of decay.
Tuesday – Saturday, 10 AM – 6 PM.
