Hot Art: Lynne Cohen Offers Open Viewing

Hall, by Lynne Cohen (photo courtesy of Olga Korper Gallery)

MAY 3 TO JUNE 30 Lynne Cohen has made a career out of finding and photographing domestic and institutional spaces. But the results are not exactly the stuff of home decor magazines. For four decades, the Montreal-based artist’s images of living rooms, lobbies, hallways, laboratories and more, free of the presence of actual people, have framed, according to Canadian Art, “an off-hours view of daily life loaded with sterile silences and subtle eccentricities.” Collected for her Scotiabank Photography Award showcase at the Design Exchange, these large-scale works shine oddly uncanny light on the environments in which we stage our public and private affairs.
