Here at SNC, we are exceptionally tuned in to the intersection of menswear and the art world. We feel that one entity informs the other, and what is fashion if not a robust offshoot of unbridled creativity? We are happy to tell you today about a new art exhibition currently showing at the Agnes b. boutique in Soho until July 5th. The new solo exhibition is by photographer, curator and designer Tim Barber. It features 39 traditional cyanotypes, made from a printing process that produces an alluring and seductive cyan-blue print.
Tim Barber (b. Feb. 5, 1979) grew up in Amherst Massachusetts, lived for a few years in the mountains of Northern Vermont, studied photography in Vancouver B.C. and now lives in New York City. He worked as the photo editor for Vice magazine (2003-2005) and founded the online gallery and image archive tinyvices.com (2005), which was released as a free App (2010) and eventually evolved into Time & Space (www.time-and-space.tv) (2013), a curated community platform for artists. Barber co-curated the inaugural New York Photo Festival (2008) along with Martin Parr (Magnum), Kathy Ryan (New York Times Magazine), and Leslie Martin (The Aperture Foundation). He also curated and edited a series of five monographs published by the Aperture Foundation (2008) and launched the independent publishing house TV Books.
To see the exhibition, visit the Agnès b. shop at 70 Howard Street, Soho. NYC
