Exhibition | Andrew Moore

Nov 18, 2015 — Jan 17, 2016

A native of Connecticut, Andrew Moore (born 1957) has taught at Princeton University and currently teaches at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. His large-format color photographs capture architectural elements and urban landscapes as they are slowly reclaimed by nature. Moore maintains a “perpetual fascination with certain kinds of decayed spaces that have been reappropriated or reused or where the evidence of people struggling to keep their dignity lingers, places that have been abandoned but retain the ghosts of what they were.” Moore’s previous projects explored subjects in Cuba, Russia, and Detroit. The photographs in Andrew Moore are part of an ongoing project that focuses on the American South.

Moore’s work is included in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the National Gallery of Art. He received the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellowship as well as grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, New York State Council on the Arts, and several private foundations.
