  • Catalogue Essay

    Deeply integrated within the 1970s and 1980s creative scene in downtown New York City, Marcia Resnik’s photographs connect both feminist and conceptual circles. In her Landscape/Loftscape series of 1976, Resnik, like others at the time, challenges the reality of the “straight photograph,” and the duality of what is real, and what is not, within the medium of photography. By juxtaposing an image of a drive-in screen, with her own self-portrait, she highlights the constructed nature of the photographic image.

    A museum retrospective, Marcia Resnik, As It Could or Should Be, the first for the photographer, will be on view throughout 2022 and 2023, opening at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, Maine and traveling to the Minneapolis Institute of Art, Minnesota, and the George Eastman Museum, New York.

    Other editions of Landscape/Loftscape #14 are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh.
