Figures in Landscapes
Two quietly revelatory, elegantly unassuming works weave tales of unexpected human connection in which art, architecture, and environment serve as characters unto themselves. In Jem Cohen’s sublime MUSEUM HOURS, it’s the grand halls and artistic masterworks of Vienna’s Kunsthistorisches Museum that provide the backdrop to a fateful meeting of two lonely souls. Then, it’s on to the town of Columbus, Indiana, an unexpected destination for marvels of midcentury modern architecture, where a young man and woman share a brief but powerful encounter in Kogonada’s exquisite COLUMBUS.
