Julie Saul Gallery specializes in contemporary photo-based art and works on paper by an international roster of established and emerging artists. We opened our first public space in Soho in 1986, and since 2000 we have been located in Chelsea. In addition to photography, we exhibit video, painting, prints, and sculpture.

We present work that is both formally innovative, and investigates meaningful themes and issues social, political and environmental. The gallery often hosts special projects involving vintage photographs, as well as thematic and historical topics. Among the group of artists we represent, several have been with us since the beginning, and we regularly premier emerging contemporary artists, as well as artists from all generations.

The gallery strives to gain exposure for our artists through both exhibition and acquisitions by museums both in the United States and Europe. We provide advice and consultation to our private and corporate collectors and pride ourselves on our knowledge, expertise and integrity. The gallery has formed several significant corporate collections. We regularly participate in public art fairs including The Art Show (ADAA) Miami Project, Pulse, Paris Photo and AIPAD (the Association of International Photographic Art Dealers) EXPO Chicago and the New York Armory Show.

Past Exhibitions

Andrea Grützner
Erbgericht/Guesthouse
535 West 22nd Street, 6th Floor
New York, NY 10011

October 29, 2016 - December 23, 2016
Julie Saul Gallery is pleased to announce Berlin based artist/photographer Andrea Grützner’s first US solo exhibition. Working with the analog process, and assorted mirrors and gels, Grützner creates straight color photographs that are at the same time abstract and representational, ambiguous and descriptive. The title and subject of the exhibition, Erbgericht (Guesthouse), is a specific traditional village guesthouse in the eastern part of Germany. Grützner grew up near an Erbgericht in the village of Polenz, east of Dresden. One family has owned this specific guesthouse for five generations since 1889. She tells of the big old house, full of nooks and crannies, whose corners and objects have the memories of generations attached to them. It’s a collage of material built over generations. Erbgericht continues the abstract language of László Moholy-Nagy and the Bauhaus. Grützner creates strict rules for herself; the whole photograph, including the shadows and the composition, is taken in only one shot on analog film without any digital alterations. Through the use of color flash and the creation of strong shadow lines, the interiors look alienated and transformed to architectural details as Grützner enters into a visual dialogue with the building. "Shadows are traces and marks that have a direct relation to the object, but through the projection, these objects can appear twice as big or transformed and changed, they take on their own lives" and thus, says Andrea Grützner, "they work a lot like memories." Andrea Grützner lives in Berlin and is a member of the photography collective Exposure Twelve. She earned her Master of Fine Arts degree in photography from the Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences in 2014 and subsequently has shown at festivals, and in solo and group shows worldwide. Grützner received the PhotoVision Sponsorship Award and the Source Cord Prize in 2014, as well as the LEAD Award (silver) in 2015. She was a winner of Gute Aussichten 2014/2015 – young German photography prize, and most recently FOAM Talent 2016, on view at the Unseen photo fair in September. Kerber Verlag recently published a monograph das Eck (The Corner) which was developed during the course of her scholarship in Koblenzer Koblenzer Stadtfotografin 2015.

Sally Gall
Aerial
535 West 22nd Street, 6th Floor
New York, NY 10011

September 8, 2016 - October 22, 2016
Julie Saul Gallery is pleased to announce our twelfth solo show with Sally Gall during our thirty years of representation. The large scale color photographs in Aerial were made between winter 2014 and fall 2015, as she continues her ongoing investigation of the sensual world. In these images, the sun, wind and brilliant color animate laundry into painterly color fields of biomorphic shapes. Billowing skirts, bed sheets, and undergarments transform into orchids, sea creatures, celestial bodies, and reference painters such as Miro and Klee. Gall says, “what started as an exploration of humanity and an appreciation for the most basic of activities, hanging laundry to dry, has expanded into an exploration of the abstract and otherworldly.Ordinary identifiable objects become mysterious, strange, outside the human realm. An element of eros is added as I am literally looking up someone’s skirt.” Photographed in Italy, Cuba, and Croatia, the lines of laundry publicly expose the intimacies of domesticity. The delicate dance of hanging laundry morphs into a conversation between the figurative and abstract. Clothes embody the presentation of the self to the world. Gall is searching for the poetry in the quotidian, the marvelous in the every day choreography of blowing lines of laundry.
