Roe Ethridge: American Polychronic (New York: MACK, 2023)

Book Signing

Roe Ethridge
American Polychronic

Saturday, February 25, 2023, 4–5pm
Gagosian Shop, New York

To celebrate the publication of his new monograph, American Polychronic, Roe Ethridge will sign copies of the book in front of his exhibition of the same name at Gagosian, New York. The comprehensive volume documents Ethridge’s work from 1999 to 2022, focusing on two interlocking threads of his celebrated photographic practice. The photographs move fluidly between genres in pursuit of a distinctive visual language—blending and playfully juxtaposing the realms of fine art, fashion imagery, and advertising with the everyday, personal, and generic. The book includes a new essay by Jamieson Webster and a conversation between the artist and Antwaun Sargent. Published by MACK, it will be available for purchase at the event, which is free to attend.
