Uta Barth, detail from "...and to draw a bright white line with light" 2011

Minimalism in photography has had an unfortunate doppelgänger in recent years, giganticism. It is one thing to be an acute observer, sharpening the viewer’s eyes, giving small distinctions great impact. It is entirely another to make small observations into bloated paeans to the inability to edit one’s own work.

In this show, almost two dozen images, each almost 5 feet wide (and each in an addition of 6) document the progressive changes in the light entering under Uta Barth’s curtains. Take a puff or two and enjoy all 112 feet.
