To celebrate the publication of his new monograph, AMERICAN POLYCHRONIC, Roe Ethridge will sign copies of the book in front of his exhibition of the same name at Gagosian, New York. The comprehensive volume documents Ethridge’s work from 1999 to 2022, focusing on two interlocking threads of his celebrated photographic practice. The photographs move fluidly between genres in pursuit of a distinctive visual language—blending and playfully juxtaposing the realms of fine art, fashion imagery, and advertising with the everyday, personal, and generic. The book includes a new essay by Jamieson Webster and a conversation between the artist and Antwaun Sargent.

About AMERICAN POLYCHRONIC
AMERICAN POLYCHRONIC presents the first comprehensive catalogue of Roe Ethridge’s work from 2000 to 2021, comprised of two interlocking threads of his celebrated photographic practice. Ethridge’s artistic and personal work is sequenced chronologically, interwoven with his commercial photography in chronological reverse, together forming a vibrant sequence of harmonies and dissonance, hits and B-sides. This long-form sequence moves fluidly between genres in the pursuit of a distinctive visual language — blending and playfully juxtaposing the realms of fine art, fashion imagery, and advertising with the everyday, personal, and generic. Ethridge explores how new visual experiences can be created through the reproduction and recombination of images, photographing and distorting the real as way of suggesting — or disrupting — the ideal.
