Rueben Cox at Bespoke Gallery


Rueben Cox, Scaly Mountain, NC, 2004, C-print

Thank goodness for Roberta Smith. I probably would not have heard of this show without her review in today's New York Times. My favorite part (which refers to the image above):

Exhibit A is the flame-haired belle in the flowered dress, pastel boa and extravagantly painted lips who has flung herself across a patch of green cow pasture as if it were the seamless paper in Richard Avedon's studio. A half dozen oblivious cows grace the horizon.

Rueben Cox photographed drag and transgendered subjects in New York, New Orleans, Memphis, and Nashville in 2004. I have to try to get there before it closes on Saturday. It's on 17th Street in the space once occupied by Rupert Goldsworthy Marcus Ritter.

After seeing Reuben Cox's second show at the Bespoke Gallery (it turns out they moved to a new space.. the same building as aperture), I found his website.
Incredible work !
here it is if anyone is as interested.
