Synchrodogs "Supernatural" exhibition at the Dallas Contemporary Museum.
"In their solo exhibition, Synchrodogs deal with natural phenomena and human essence aiming to deviate from what is normal or explainable by science. A new commissioned series of works was photographed during their one-month residency in the US. The project combines portraits and sceneries that convey artists’ insightful experience caused by the serene and abandoned natural settings. The show will strikingly document Synchrodogs’s passion for surreal foreplay, eccentricity, franticness, and intuitive gestures."
The exhibition, opening on 20th September will be on display until 20th December.

New Zine released by Akzidenz - "AD REM / Monsters of a mechanical 20th century world"
Limited edition of 150 signed and numbered copies.
NEW LOVE by Session Press, is the first official US monograph by Ren Hang. NEW LOVE presents recent photographs taken in February 2015 during his visit to New York City.
"Hang’s work in NEW LOVE includes casual snap shots taken of friends in parks, cafés, streets, and apartments in Brooklyn and Manhattan, smartly blended with the striking nude photos he is becoming increasingly renowned for. Hang is highly censored by the authorities in China, and the opportunity to work in New York City brought a more relaxed and playful energy to his photographs, and gave his abundant creativity new avenues of expression. As a result, both the diaristic pictures and the stylized nudes in NEW LOVE are imbued with an undeniable sense of discovery and joy, and thrillingly document one of contemporary photography’s most exciting young artists taking bold advantage of the new and unfamiliar." - Session Press
The book is comes in limited edition of 500 copies, of which a number are signed.
The book is available from Session Press
