Exploring New Haven

{ Through August 20 } A new Yale University Art Gallery exhibit explores New Haven through a unique lens in this new exhibit. 

Now on view at Yale University Art Gallery is Candy/A Good and Spacious Land, a new exhibit featuring photography from Jim Goldberg and Donovan Wylie. The show features work the two photographers began creating  in 2013, while the two were artists in residence at the gallery.

Goldberg, returning to New Haven after four decades, focuses on his native city’s people and their stories through distinctive intimate portraits. The Irish-born Wylie approaches the massive reconstructed highway merge between Interstates 91 and 95 as a compositional framework for understanding the city and its residents as an outsider. Together the two artists—whose combined bodies of work were published as a two-volume set—ponder New Haven’s mission to become a “model city” in contrast with the lived realities of its citizens.
