This event has ended.

Like the Spice is pleased to announce Bennett Morris: Climate Untamed. This will be the artist's first solo show in New York highlighting twelve photographs made between 2006-2009 that diagram Morris's unique examination on beauty, fear, politics, and the sublime.

Steeped in the visual language of Romanticism, Morris's photographs examine the intimate relationship between beauty and fear while playing on the diluted modern politics of "Shock and awe." Re-examining the classical thresholds like harmony and unity, Bennett follows in the path of painters like Salvatore Rosa who was drawn to the foreboding beauty of the Pyrenees when the term "awesome" was still weighted by a near-religious awe. The result of Bennett's exploration into this godlike fear and beauty creates a show that is more about climate than atmosphere, releasing singular moments to a vast array of emotions.
