10 Corso Como opens the Gallery with a Roe Ethridge solo show

10 Corso Como opens the Gallery with Happy Birthday Louise Parker, a solo exhibition by American artist Roe Ethridge (Miami, 1969).

Curated by Alessandro Rabottini, it is the first exhibition in Italy to showcase one of the most distinctive voices in international photography. Known for his provocative, unconventional and highly lyrical style, Ethridge explores the potential of the photographic image, in a way that trascends the division between artistic research and commercial photography, triggering in the process a profound dialogue between art and fashion, personal memories and the history of photography.

Happy Birthday Louise Parker pairs iconic creations from the past 15 years with previously unreleased works, training the spotlight on the numerous intertwined themes and sensibilities in Ethridge’s artistic practice. While he explores a diverse array of subjects – exuberant still lifes, painstakingly staged fashion shots, melancholic landscapes, and intimate portraits – Ethridge tackles each image with the same extreme formal rigor, deploying an approach that adds stylistic and conceptual tension to his lived experience and to the imagery of fashion.
