    The White Sky

    October 2 — November 19, 2021

    At 13 we wore faded jeans, torn at the knees, tight white t-shirts, long straight hair parted down the middle. We wandered through the suburban landscape hiding in corners, smoking cigarettes, looking for stuff to do. - Mimi Plumb

    Robert Koch Gallery presents Mimi Plumb: The White Sky, the gallery’s second exhibition by American photographer Mimi Plumb. On view will be black and white photographs by the artist, which come accompanied by a monograph of the same title. The White Sky, published in 2020 by British publisher Stanley/Barker, much like Plumb’s seminal 2018 Landfall monograph has been received with much critical acclaim. The encompassing works taken by Plumb in the 1970’s (while she was in her early twenties) in and around her hometown suburb of Walnut Creek expound beautifully on the banality of Californian suburban sprawl, touching on narratives of youthful summertime wanderlust. The resulting photographs are enthralling and mysterious, leading one to the next in tangential storylines that are incredibly resounding.
