Onishi Project Gallery presents Jade Doskow’s World’s Fairs: Lost Utopias, for the 50th anniversary of the 1964 New York World’s Fair. Her seven year project captures the memory of the fair by documenting the architecture and grounds left behind. The images hold a melancholy feeling about people and the spaces they no longer use, while displaying the fun atmosphere of the memories retained in these dormant structures. Transitioning from bright daylight to the dark of night, the photographs evoke the passage of time. While most of these color images are lacking people, some photographs mix the past and present with individuals examining the old structures.

This is the New York debut of Doskow’s project, the first collection to be shown at the Onishi Project and is curated by Kipton Cronkite.

The show runs through June 10, closing with a reception and talk.
