ADAA Art Fair NYC, March 1st- 5th 2017. 
Yossi Milo Gallery is pleased to exhibit the work of Clare Strand and Marco Breuer, two artists who each investigate photography’s origins, uses, and limitations. While distinct in their respective practices, what unifies these two artists is their acute understanding of how photography functions and their dedication to examining the medium rather than relying on its conventions for the affirmation of truth telling.

The Surreal in the Work of Clare Strand. Essay by Camilla Brown for Photomonitor.

Over the years Clare Strand has developed a range of projects and books and had a consistent output of her work nationally and internationally in exhibitions. Passionate about photography, she has been keen to interrogate its boundaries and limits. As with most contemporary art it can be hard to pin down Strand’s oeuvre as she adopts a heterogeneous style. Her work is always a project and exploration, and it seeks to provoke intelligent debate.

Getting Better and Worse at the Same Time show, Grimaldi Gavin/London 29th April- 6th June

To think about the demise of a work before it is made is an uneasy point to start from.To acknowledge and knowingly invite entropy into a process, in times when an artworks value is partly defined by its longevity, could be considered foolish or errant. Getting Better and Worse at the Same Time is a show that is designed to grapple with these ideas, in both a personal and philosophical way. The exhibition considers this complex proposition; can works continue to degrade yet still retain their value, their aesthetic and maintain a sense of reason. The works in the show are moving, rubbing, scrapping and most importantly changing - changing in ways that can’t be mathematically defined or logically anticipated. They are works making themselves.Clare Strand 2015.
