Paris Views: Gail Albert Halaban

Gail Albert Halaban discusses her new book, Paris Views, with Amy Adler at Aperture Gallery.

 - November 13, 2014

On October 29, 2014, we joined artist Gail Albert Halaban for a conversation with Amy Adler, Emily Kempin Professor of Law at the NYU School of Law, about Halaban’s new book, Paris Views. The two discussed the conventions and tensions of urban lifestyles, the blurring between reality and fantasy, feelings of isolation in the city, and intimacies of home and daily life in Halaban’s work. A continuation of Halaban’s 2012 series Out My Window, her new series Paris Views shifts her focus from New York to Paris and features cinematic atmospheres and intimate domestic stills taken through the windows of her neighbors and others in the community.
