Carl & Sloan Contemporary is pleased to announce the release of Vibrations, a new book of photographs by Damien Gilley. A one-night, special exhibition will accompany the book release and feature a site-specific installation by Gilley.

Buy The Book

Purchase Vibrations and the custom display shelf directly from Damien Gilley or the book can be purchased in the gallery.


Vibrations is a book release with editions, produced by Container Corps, available for $30. An optional custom fabricated steel shelf with white powdercoat finish is available for $20 to display the book’s 33 individual photographs on the wall. The first 30 books sold will include a 13 x 19 inch print from the book.

The book acts as both documentations of temporary installations in artists’ studios and as dystopian sci-fi landscapes. New spaces and distorted architecture exist concurrently as a layer on top of the real, physical space. The only visual clarity is created by insufficient means of identification, sporadic scanning lasers and virtually non-existent ambient light. The result is an atemporal world between cyber-nostalgia and cyborg-futures. 

The book also features an essay by Rachel Adams, Associate Curator at the University of Buffalo Art Galleries in Buffalo, NY, and 2014-2015 Curator-in-Residence at Disjecta Contemporary Art Center in Portland.

The release of Damien Gilley’s new book and site-specific installation occurs on April 25,  6–10pm and is open for one night only. For more information, please contact the gallery at info [at] carlsloan.com
