Lane Meyer Projects is pleased to present LMP PDA, a new public exhibition space where artworks will be displayed in our public-facing window vitrine every 2 weeks, until we open at full capacity. Exhibited artworks will be for sale and 100% of the sales will go directly to the artists, who have agreed to donate a portion to a social, political or otherwise engaged organization of their choice.
LMP PDA is viewable 24/7 and we invite you to stop by anytime while wearing a mask and practicing appropriate social distancing - it’s our way to propose a new way of thinking and looking together, while we’re staying apart.
On view from September 7th to September 20th at LMP PDA is Shadows Gather.
Shadows Gather is a photography project that documents the alternative nightlife scene and the colorful individuals that thrive in it. Based out of Denver, Colorado, Shadow uses non-conventional techniques, such as pairing a Fuji Instax Neo Classic Mini with lighting from an iPhone flashlight, to create striking instant photographs that preserve and celebrate underground culture. In her photos you’ll find energetic portraits from a mixture of scenes, gutter punks, drag queens and creatures of the night.
Shadow has directly experienced the growth and cultural changes that have occurred in Denver and has focused her work on ensuring that the visual narrative of her subjects remains as the city continues to evolve. She celebrates the beauty of those on the cultural fringes and provides a sense of community and a safe haven to folks that have been deemed misfits by mainstream culture.
Following the project launch in March of 2019, Shadow has since become a staple in music venues, nightclubs, and bars across Denver, as well as traveling to locales like Austin, Texas and Los Angeles to further her work. Shadow has created an ardent online audience and will be exhibiting her work in her first solo art show at the Lane Meyer Projects Gallery in Denver, Colorado date TBD.
