Justine Kurland
This Train is Bound for Glory

Photographs

September 2 - October 2, 2010

_i_This Train is Bound for
For two years Justine Kurland and her young son traveled throughout the American West, exploring what remains of our commercial rail system. Kurland photographed not only these trains in the landscape, but also the train hoppers and hobos who clandestinely ride the rails, as well as her own little family and its experience of the journey. The resulting photographs consider the romanticism and utopian fantasies inherent in the American experience, also presenting an extremely rare (in this day and age), extraordinarily personal relationship to the physical reality of our country and its industrial and social fringes.

Born in Warsaw, NY in 1969, Justine Kurland received her MFA in 1998 from Yale University. Since then, her work has been included in exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art (New York, NY), the Institute of Contemporary Art (Philadelphia, PA), and many galleries and museums throughout the world. Her photographs are a part of the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York, NY) and the Guggenheim Museum (New York, NY), among several others. She is represented by Mitchell-Innes & Nash (New York, NY).
