Conner Contemporary Art is pleased to announce the opening of three solo exhibitions featuring drawings by ZoŽ Charlton, photographs by David Levinthal and video by Gabriel de la Mora.
In War David Levinthal juxtaposes Iraq (2008), his latest series of photographs, with selections from his seminal work Hitler Moves East (1977). In grad school at Yale, he and Garry Trudeau recreated the WWII German military invasion of Russia with toy soldiers. This Kodalith film series catalyzed the fabrication movement in photography. Viewers are invited to consider Levinthal's first body of work in relation to his new digital photographs of toy models, which represent the US invasion of Iraq. In conjunction with FOTOWEEK DC, Conner Contemporary will host a gallery talk and champagne reception with the artist on Saturday, November 15, at 11 am.
There will be an opening reception for the artist Friday, November 15th from 6-8pm.
