Bill Armstrong @ Dolby Chadwick

March 2021

Quarantine, a series that comprises roughly half of Bill Armstrong’s current two-part exhibition, Unspoken, contains no Ouija boards or images of spouting ectoplasm, though neither would feel out of place. That is because the New York photographer is engaged in something of a conjuring act: While in lockdown last year, he downloaded images of artists and thinkers who lived in perilous times analogous to our own and subjected them to digital manipulations that effectively thrust them into the present.… read more
