Alec Soth will be a visiting artist at the American Academy in Rome from May 17 to May 23, 2010. In conjunction with his visit, the Academy will host an exhibition of his photographs, titled Alec Soth: Portraits.

The exhibition will feature a variety of portraits of Americans taken over the last 12 years, from mothers of Marines serving in Iraq to teenage mothers in the Louisiana Bayou, from religious propaganda in the American workplace to the mortgage crisis in Stockton, California. The exhibition is made possible by the Gagosian Gallery, Rome.

An opening reception will be held on Friday, May 21, 2010, from 6:00 – 9:00 pm, at the Academy’s Gallery, Via Angelo Masina, 5, Rome, Italy. The exhibition will run until June 18, 2010, viewed by appointment.

This fall, Radius Books is releasing a book featuring works by Alec Soth and photographer John Gossage. The product of a 2009 collaborative trip to New Zealand, the publication is titled The Auckland Project.
