This event has ended.

Edwynn Houk Gallery presents Out My Window, a solo exhibition of recent work by Gail Albert Halaban.

Out My Window will be composed of eleven images, selected primarily from Albert Halaban’s 2018 George Eastman Museum exhibition, many of which have never before been presented by the gallery. It will feature an array of international cities, including several illustrated in her newly published book, Italian Views, such as Venice, Rome, and Naples.

Initially conceived in 2007 after Albert Halaban moved to Manhattan and became fascinated with the interpersonal dynamics between city neighbors who observe each other’s home lives from afar through their apartment windows, Out My Window has grown into a twelve-year ongoing series featuring cities across the globe, from Paris to Bangkok, Istanbul, and Buenos Aires.

The series has evolved through the connections Albert Halaban develops with the subjects of her photographs during her collaborative process, and the resulting bodies of work are uniquely shaped by the particular characteristics and customs of each city and its inhabitants. Each one is a story in its own right, depicting the nuanced relationship between that city’s residents and its architecture, as well as a chapter in the artist’s continuous exploration of the overarching question of what it means to be part of a modern urban community.

Gail Albert Halaban holds an MFA in Photography from Yale University. Three monographs of her work have been published: Out My Window (PowerHouse, 2012), Paris Views (Aperture, 2014) and Italian Views (Aperture, 2019), and her photographs are in the collections of the George Eastman Museum, Rochester, NY; Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, CT; Nelson-Atkins Museum, Kansas City, MO; Cape Ann Museum, Gloucester, MA; and Wichita Art Museum, Wichita, KS. The artist lives and works in New York City.
