“Miles Aldridge: I Only Want You to Love Me,” a retrospective of the internationally renowned British artist’s cinematic fashion-based work opens May 8th (through June 8, 2013) at Steven Kasher Gallery in New York City. The 20 large-scale color photographs in the exhibition present a satirical, darkly humorous view of women, fashion, and commodification today. Aldridge creates an entirely believable world just slightly beyond our own: hyper-sexualized, hyper-materialistic, and full of dread. Think Stepford Wives on acid.
This exhibition launches Aldridge’s two new books: “Miles Aldridge: I Only Want You to Love Me” (Rizzoli, 2013, introduction by Glenn O’Brien), and “Other Pictures” (Editions 7L/Steidl, 2013). Join Aldridge for a book signing at the opening reception on May 8th, from 6-8pm at the Steven Kasher Gallery.
