Magenta Plains is pleased to present The Garden of Forking Paths, an exhibition organized by Adam Marnie. Inspired by Jorge Luis Borges's 1941 short story of the same name, in which time and space are conceived of as unfixed, overlapping, and multiple, this exhibition presents works that weave together personal, familial, historical, and cultural narratives as well as geographic locations. Often rooted in photography, even when not employing the medium itself, the works both traffic in and trouble a belief in photography's evidentiary status. Each work functions as a portal to another dimension, opening onto real and imagined spaces.
In coordination with the opening of The Garden of Forking Paths, Magenta Plains presents the release of F Magazine, issue 5, published by Adam Marnie. F issue 5 includes contributions by Aaron Aujla, Heather Bursch, Edgar Bryan, Andrianna Campbell, Greg Carlock, Dylan Marcus Corbett, Sara Cwynar, Cynthia Daignault,
