"Eyes Recently Open," the latest exhibition at Letitia Gallery, explores the structures and struggles of daily life through photography and video. Curated by Lauren Wetmore, the eight-piece series by Pakistani artist Basir Mahmood is his first effort to delve into photography, having spent many years as a sculptor. Most recently, Mahmood participated in the 10th Berlin Art Biennale and completed the Rijksakademie residency program in Amsterdam in 2016-2017 . His work has been shown in such international events as Dubai's Abraaj Group Art Prize, Sharjah Biennial 11 and at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo.Taken over the last five years, these photos mainly focus on themes of labor, hierarchy, distribution and identity, the goal being to understand or highlight the often controversial nature of these topics. Wetmore first saw Mahmood's work at the Contour Biennale in 2017, and has since encouraged him to create this show, combining both old and new pieces.
