Alexandra Silverthorne

For the past three years, my good friend Alexandra Silverthorne has been working on MidNights, a series of nocturnal photographs exploring ideas around space, landscape, and proprioception. In November, she will be exhibiting a selection of these photographs at harmon art lab (HAL) in Washington, DC. This exhibition will coincide with a book launch of MidNights: photographs + writings.

The Exhibition
Opening Reception: Friday, November 11, 6pm-9pm
Artist Talk: Saturday, November 19, 2pm-3pm
Book Launch: Wednesday, November 30, 7pm

The exhibition will run from November 11-December 3. MidNights will be exhibited in the solo space while installation artist/architect Ira Tattelman will be taking over HAL's project space.

The Book
This 76-page book presents the complete collection of the 41 MidNights photographs along with the series of short writings. The writings are based on personal experiences and touch upon the different ideas that fueled the project. The book also includes an introductory essay by Jayme McLellan as well as a conversation with Rebecca Duclos.

The book can be previewed and purchased online here or at harmon art lab in Washington, DC during the run of the exhibition.
