DOT FIFTYONE PRESENTS ANASTASIA SAMOYLOVA'S EXHIBITION IN A VIRTUAL TALK WITH DAVID CAMPANY
Dot Fiftyone, a Miami based gallery, announces a Virtual Talk between artist Anastasia Samoylova and David Company, Managing Director of Programs at the International Center of Photography (ICP) New York, on Thursday July 16, 12 pm EST (1 pm ARG). They will engage in a conversation about Samoylova’s photographic work and current exhibition ‘FloodZone’, on view at the gallery.
Anastasia Samoylova’s subtle sensitivity and incisive wit inform her unique way of looking at one of most urgent issues of the 21st Century: climate change. Her engagement with water is what ultimately determines the sense of her work. The artist moves through natural and urban spaces, picking out eerie details that remind us of the possibility of an imminent catastrophe, or pointing to climate-related gentrification and the pushing out of local communities. The result is a singular portrait of the region, which captures its ambiguous essence as a heavenly but fragile and uncertain geography.
David Campany is a curator, writer, and Managing Director of Programs at the International Center of Photography, New York. Renowned for his engaging and rigorous writing, exhibitions and public speaking, David has worked worldwide with institutions including MoMA New York, Tate, Whitechapel Gallery London, Centre Pompidou, Le Bal Paris, Stedelijk Museum, The Photographer’s Gallery London, ParisPhoto, PhotoLondon, The National Portrait Gallery London, Aperture, Steidl, MIT Press, Thames & Hudson, MACK and Frieze.

Anastasia Samoylova moves between observational photography, studio practice and installation. In 2020 she has held a solo exhibition at the Contemporary Art Museum at USF Tampa.

Other recent exhibitions include Salisbury University; Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago; Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design; Griffin Museum of Photography; Aperture Foundation; as well as numerous festivals in Brazil, Belgium, France, Israel, Spain, Netherlands, and South Korea.
