MoMA, New Photography 2012 feat. Michele Abeles, Anne Collier, Zoe Crosher, Shirana Shahbazi and Birdhead on GoSee

MoMA is presenting its autumn menu of photography. And there is certainly something on the menu to tickle everyone’s fancy.

This season five artists selected by the curator Eva Respini share the honour.

Let us introduce: Michele Abeles, a specialist in collages of objects and naked men, or in art terms ‘male nudes’.

Second up is Anne Collier, who makes conceptual art resembling commercial photographs.

Then we have Zoe Crosher, who likes to unabashedly create fictional self-portraits.

Aperture writes: ‘Zoe Crosher's The Unraveling of Michelle duBois is a reconsidered archive culled from crates, boxes and albums consisting of endless flirtatious smiles, tourist shots, cheesecake mementos and suggestive poses in every film type and size.

It is simply an archive. But nothing is ever simple. Michelle duBois, one of a number of aliases, kept a lot of pictures of herself.

Turning tricks in the Pacific Rim during the '70s, she took on many guises for her particular profession and kept fanatical documentation of her many dramatic transformations. Until one day, she didn't.’ Read the full article here.

Also featured are the conceptual works of German-Iranian Shirana Shabazi and Chinese duo Chinese duo, Birdhead, aka Ji Weiyu and Song Tao, who have captured everyday Shanghai using the trusty snapshot technique.

The photos are on display in the Robert and Joyce Menschel Room and are bound to be as promising live as they are here in our GoSee preview, don’t you think?
