Conceptual photographer Christopher Williams is an artist’s artist. Ever since he moved to Germany, his measured work, which both reveres and examines the art of photography, has more and more easily found its way into European art institutes, such as this spring at Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens in Deurle, Belgium.
This summer, Elad Lassry's photographs and an enchanting video work were shown at ILLUMInations in Venice, giving the Los Angeles based artist a wider European audience. His first solo show in London opened last week at the White Cube.
November 6th, the new exhibition by American artist Lisa Oppenheim Blood of the Ghosts opens at Galerie Juliètte Jongma in Amsterdam. Oppenheim attempts to recapture the photographic images of yore in her work by considerably expanding the photographic moment, once considered so historical.
The American artist Lisa Oppenheim is fascinated by old photography, both in terms of its technique and import. She attempts to recapture the photographic images of yore in her work by considerably expanding the photographic moment, once considered so historical.
