Location Volume One

Isa Newby Gagarin

For its first volume Location features Guam-born, Minneapolis-based emerging artist Isa Newby Gagarin, who explores the moon as a metaphor for photographic processes. Gagarin collages together appropriated images from vintage magazines with “moonprints,” photographs she produces by exposing photo-sensitive paper to moonlight. To Gagarin, these images echo the moon itself, an object (when viewed as a flat disk) that she sees as a surrogate for a photograph that is developed by the light of the sun.

Un-schooled as a child, Gagarin grew up in Florida, Texas, Alaska and Hawai'i. This book imparts Gagarin’s invented, subversive and playful means of research that points to her Altermodern perspective of the world which is equal parts Italo Calvino, selenology, and cultural anthropology.

Gagarin’s previous exhibition history includes installations at Midway Contemporary Art, Art of This Gallery, Rochester Art Center, The Soap Factory and Synchronicity Gallery in Los Angeles. She was recently appointed to the board of Midway Contemporary Art. This is her first published book.
