Nearest Neighbor

October 7, 2016–March 12, 2017
Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati
www.contemporaryartscenter.org

Nearest Neighbor is Roe Ethridge’s first solo museum exhibition in the United States. This mid-career survey presents more than fifteen years of the artist’s photographs, focusing on his shifts between the realms of commercial, fine art, and personal photography. The show is titled after the photographic term “nearest neighbor,” which refers to the type of sampling used when resizing a digital image. The exhibition also alludes to the personal nature of Ethridge’s work, as he regularly includes his family and friends, as well as himself, as subjects in his photographs.

Roe Ethridge

April 21–September 2, 2012
Consortium Museum, Dijon, France
www.leconsortium.fr

In this exhibition, Roe Ethridge melds conceptual photography with commercial work, including outtakes from his own shoots and borrowed images already in circulation in other contexts. With this democratic attitude, Ethridge works to capture the vivid and intimate details of his shifting locales within photography’s classic genres of portrait, landscape, and still life.
