Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery, a new contemporary art gallery, opened it doors in New York in September of 2003 with a successful group exhibition entitled ArtApparatus. The gallery will continue its programming dedicated to the exhibition, study, and sale of moving image and photographic works with another group exhibition, L'attitude. This group show of video and photographic work will be on view from November 15 through December 18, 2003. The gallery is located at 601 West 26th Street, Suite 1240, in the Chelsea art district, New York.

The gallery's second exhibition, L'attitude, features works from an international roster of some of today's most acclaimed media artists. Multi-media artist Monika Bravo will show a series of digitally-processed still photographs that explore concepts of space and time using images of skyscrapers. Seoungho Cho, a video artist, will show a two-channel video installation with a six-minute program that examines notions of imagination and perception. Naoya Hatakeyama, one Japan's most noteworthy contemporary photographers, will show works from his series of limestone quarries. Like much of his work, the exhibiting photographs reflect Hatakeyama's relentless research and discovery of specific locations and structures that echo qualities of film stills.


Monika Bravo, a Columbian-born artist living and working in Brooklyn, NY, works primarily with moving images, still photography and sound. She studied photography and fashion design in New York, London, Paris and Rome and has received grants and awards such as the SITE Santa Fe Art Institute Artist-In-Residence Grant and the NYSCA Electronic Media & Film Award. Her work encourages the viewer to explore, interact and at times focus on an object-place-scene for a duration of time in a manner that is both meditative and investigative. She recently received attention for her video work that features a storm in Manhattan recorded the day before September 11, 2001. The footage was recorded from the 92nd floor of the World Trade Center where she was an artist-in-residence of the Santa Fe Art Institute as part of the World's Views Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Studio Residency Program. She has participated in many international film festivals and video screenings, including the Museum of Modern Art and the Brooklyn Museum of Art in New York.

Seoungho Cho was born in South Korea but has made his home in New York City since 1988. He received his Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in Graphic Arts from Hong-Ik University, South Korea, and a Master of Arts in Video Art from New York University. Cho creates video installations and multi-channel video works, utilizing monitors and video projectors. Lyrical and visually striking, his video works are distinguished by a unique confluence of complex image processing and sound collage. Resonating with a highly metaphorical sensibility, Cho's single-channel tapes and installations are formalist, almost painterly explorations of subjectivity and the subconscious. Cho's work hints to isolation and loneliness in relation to culture and landscape. He received a Rockefeller Foundation Media Arts Fellowship, was awarded a residency at the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio in Milan, and received a Jerome Foundation grant. Cho has also received the Juror's Citation at the 18th Annual Black Maria Film Festival as well as the International Award for Video Art from ZKM.

Naoya Hatakeyama was born in Japan and presently lives in Tokyo. He studied at The University of Tsukuba School of Art and Design where he received his Bachelor of Arts and completed postgraduate studies. He approaches his photography as a tool to research and understand his surroundings. This study into the locations of his subjects is revealed through the passage of time found in his images. His architectural and archeological series of photographs explore the dialectical relationship between nature and civilization. Hatakeyama has received numerous awards, such as the Kimura Ihei Memorial Award of Photography and the Higasikawa Domestic Photographer Prize. His work is collected by some of the world's most prestigious public collections including the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris, the Japan Foundation in Tokyo, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas. Hatakeyama has participated in numerous group exhibitions in addition to those listed above and, in 2001, represented Japan at the 49th Venice Biennale.
