The title of this exhibition, taken from an early B-side by Belle & Sebastian, is more than just a piece of poetic musing. McGinley does, in fact, know where his summers go. In the summer of 2007, for example, he traversed the United States with sixteen models and three assistants, shooting 4,000 rolls of film. From the resulting 150,000 photographs, he arduously narrowed down the body of work to some fifty images, the best of which are on display here at the gallery.
That’s also how we write blog posts here oddly enough. Team also held a McGinley solo last year and in 2003 had him in Bob Nickas’ epic My People Were Fair and Had Cum in their Hair (but Now They’re Content to Spray Stars from your Boughs) group show, which has to be the best riff off an album title ever. The opening reception is tonight from 6-8p and the exhibition runs through May 3rd.
