Miles Aldridge – Virgin Mary. Supermarkets. Popcorn. Photographs 1999 to 2020 at Fotografiska New York: May 7 – October 17, 2021
At Fotografiska New York, an explosive new show celebrates the extravagant universe of the British artist and photographer Miles Aldridge. Described as a “best-of” of Aldridge’s oeuvre, the retrospective will feature over 50 works, shot entirely on film, from across the artist’s two-decade career. These will range from his cinema-inspired tableaus, which pay homage to the many filmmakers who’ve influenced him (Hitchcock, Lynch, Fellini et al), to his extraordinary portraiture, which captures such seminal figures as Donatella Versace and Marina Abramović in his singular, highly dramatised style.
