2015 TAG Limited Art Edition
Celestial Bodies, (40° 44’ N x 73° 59’ W), 1
Photogram silver gelatin print on llford fiber based Classic Matte + wood frame
Print: 14 x 11 inches
Framed: 18 x 15 inches
Unique multiple of 20

Celestial Bodies (40°44’N x 73°59’W) is a multiple of 20 silver gelatin photograms generously donated by the artist Joy Episalla to TAG on the occasion of its 2015 Research in Action Awards. Each of the 20 photograms is unique. The title of the multiple, Celestial Bodies (40°44’N x 73°59’W), is derived from several references: 1. the cohesive astronomical structures bound together by gravity (and sometimes by electromagnetism), such as asteroids, moons, planets, and stars; 2. the friends and loved ones we have lost to AIDS; and 3. the latitude and longitude of TAG’s headquarters in New York City.
Joy Episalla is a multidisciplinary New York–based artist. Episalla has exhibited widely in the United States and Europe since the 1980s. Her recent solo exhibition, Street View Rear Window, at Participant Inc in New York City, garnered much critical acclaim. David Ebony wrote, “the set-up seems simple, but the perceptual workout Episalla offers is formidable.” Writing of the show in Photograph magazine, Carlo McCormick said, “in ways at once poetic and process-driven, Episalla is most interested in creating open-ended situations that engage the viewer in the question of how we see or read things.” Episalla is a founding member of the lesbian art collective fierce pussy. A longtime AIDS activist, Episalla has been a part of TAG for over 20 years and a board member since 2006. Joy Episalla’s work will be featured in Greater New York at MoMA PS1 this October through March 2016.
