Andrew Moore (American/ b. 1957) "Simon's Schoolhouse Museum, Remington County, South Dakota," 2014, Ed. 2/5, photographic archival pigment print. Titled and dated on label en verso from Jackson Fine Art, Atlanta, GA. Housed under glass in an ebonized wood frame. Sight: 35 1/2" H x 47 1/2" W. Framed: 37 1/4" H x 49" W. Note: This photograph was part of a decade long project for his book, "Dirt Meridian," in which photographer Andrew Moore traveled to homestead sites along the 100th meridian line of longitude running through Nebraska, North and South Dakota, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas, to witness how pioneers attracted by the Homestead Act fared generations later. The subject of this particular photograph was the invitation-only "Schoolhouse Museum" started in 1972 by Edgar Simon, a fifth generation South Dakota farmer, rancher, poet and historian who tries to "collect and display every possible variation of the objects that capture his fascination." Artist Biography: A native of Connecticut, Andrew Moore has taught at Princeton University and currently teaches at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. His large-format color photographs capture architectural elements and urban landscapes and his "perpetual fascination with certain kinds of decayed spaces that have been reappropriated or reused or where the evidence of people struggling to keep their dignity lingers, places that have been abandoned but retain the ghosts of what they were." Moore's work is included in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the National Gallery of Art. He received the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellowship as well as grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, New York State Council on the Arts, and several private foundations.
