GRIMM is pleased to announce the exhibition of Dana Lixenberg’s 69-minute three-channel video installation Imperial Courts (2015) at our New York gallery space. This video is an expansion of Lixenberg’s extensive project Imperial Courts, 1993-2015.
Imperial Courts tracks the changing shape of a small, inner-city community from South Central Los Angeles through a combination of video, a web documentary, audio recordings, and a series of 393 black and white photographs made with a large format camera. The photos are compiled in a monograph published by ROMA Publications in 2015, which was nominated for several photo book awards and received the biennial Dutch Photo Book Prize 2017. Imperial Courts was awarded the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2017, and is currently exhibited at Aperture, New York, USA and at Centre Photographique, Rouen, France.
