Joseph Bellows Gallery, La Jolla, announces its upcoming exhibition, Bijou: Photographs of Theater Box Offices by Ave Pildas. This solo show, on view from 5 September – 24 October, will be the artist’s first at the gallery, and will feature Pildas’ small-scale vintage black and white photographs from the mid 1970’s. These images document, as the exhibition’s title implies, the small jewel like structures that crown the façade of theatres. The artist’s frontal camera position and distance to his subject remain the same in each image. This methodology forms a visual inventory of varied theatre box offices; a typology that surveys the remaining traces of a vanishing architectural and cinematic culture.
