Ziad Antar’s photographs probe the production of images, their role as documentation, and their symbolic relationship to time passing within the urban environment. For “Here and Elsewhere,” Antar presents the “Expired” series, which began in 2000 with the artist’s visit to Studio Shehrazade in Saïda, the workshop of renowned Lebanese studio photographer Hashem El Madani (b. 1928). From El Madani, Antar purchased a 1948 Kodak Reflex II camera and ten rolls of medium format, black-and-white film that had expired in 1976. For nearly a decade, Antar experimented with this film in different vintage cameras during his travels to Cairo, Dubai, and Sharjah, producing grainy, painterly reflections of light and shadow.

An intriguing concept: how to create an art exhibition about the inability to communicate? That is what curator Rachel Valinsky has set out to do in Itself Not So, the current group show at Lisa Cooley on the Lower East Side, and for the most part, her selections neatly vault past the inherent paradox of the proposition.
