Roy Colmer: Doors

17 January – 22 February 2020

Roy Colmer: Doors

Estate of Roy Colmer

Opening reception: 16 January, 6-8pm

Known primarily for his conceptual photography, film projects and colour-intensive paintings, Roy Colmer challenged the boundaries between these disciplines in order to develop a new kind of perception. From November of 1975 through September of 1976, Colmer created his most ambitious conceptual project, Doors, NYC. This work is comprised of images of more than 3000 doors, inclusive and in sequence, on 120 intersections and streets of Manhattan, all the way from Wall Street to Fort Washington. At once investigating the serial possibilities of photography and the dynamic streets of his adopted hometown, Doors, NYC is the most exceptional example in Colmer's oeuvre of his importance in the experimental and conceptual movements of the 1960s and 70s. For this exhibition, Lisson Gallery will present the series in its entirety at the 24th Street location.
