Hannah Whitaker: Cold Wave
March 15 through April 26, 2014
612 N Almont Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90069
Brooklyn-based Hannah Whitaker, an editor for Triple Canopy, makes photographs based on formal systems that also have intentional subjects. An expanse of stacked cubes may also be a landscape or evenly spaced spots of light might interrupt a head-on portrait. For her show at M+B, she’s using hand cut paper screens, sometimes layering them on top of each other, to obscure her subjects — though, of course, the screens themselves often become the subject.
