About & Press
LIGHTS OFF, AFTER HOURS, IN THE DARK Lights Off, After Hours, In The Dark features a new series of works by Jonathan Monk in which he has photographed the Louise Lawler 2021 exhibition at Metro Pictures in New York. These photographs were taken in one evening after the gallery was closed to the public and relied on long exposures and ambient light emanating from exit signs, skylights, and hallways. The series was edited down to nine images and these were printed as dye sublimation prints directly on aluminium. Each picture was then framed in powder coated steel frames. The nine different RAL colours used were selected by Donald Judd for his metal furniture production in 1984.
