Cocktails & Trees Exhibit at PLACE

May 3, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Art Installation and Cocktail Party

Join us for an exclusive U.S. exhibition of Michael Kenna’s Trees and enjoy cocktails at PLACE.

For over fifty years, Michael Kenna has been looking at landscapes in unique and out of the ordinary ways. An innovator and true master in photography, Michael pioneered minimalist black and white images, often captured on multi-hour-long exposures. All done on film, his work could not be mistaken for anyone else’s. His mysterious photographs concentrate on the interaction between ephemeral atmospheric conditions of the natural landscape, human-made structures, and sculptural mass. Kenna is both a diurnal and nocturnal photographer, fascinated by times of day when light is at its most pliant.

His masterfully crafted prints are always sold out, his books are considered works of art, and his exhibitions are in numerous galleries and permanent museums’ collections throughout the world. The National Gallery, Washington, D.C.; The Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris; The Shanghai Art Museum; and The Victoria and Albert Museum, London – are always sought after when displaying Kenna’s talent. PLACE is honored to host the occasion with Michael’s long-term collaborator and special guest Mark Silva.
