Guy Tillim
Second Nature

Photography | Kuckei + Kuckei, Berlin, Germany | Friday 14 September 2012 - Saturday 27 October 2012

In his new series, Second Nature, Guy Tillim explores the ambivalence of the image and the memory in our contemplation of images. The first part of these works arose on and around the islands of French Polynesia. On his travels, he follows in the tracks of explorers such as James Cook and artists such as Paul Gauguin in his desire to gain a contemporary view of this “paradise”. And in the process, he occupies himself with questions regarding the independence of the motif and the role played by the beholder. How much of ourselves do we invest in an image?

WIEVPOINT / A closer look at showing

Photography | Huis Marseille, Amsterdam, Netherlands | Friday 14 September 2012 - Sunday 9 December 2012

The Viewpoint exhibition walks lines that cross between photography and other visual arts, between the museum's own photographic collection and the collections of others, between contemporary art and echoes of the past. Viewpoint underlines the emotion that looking at an artwork can bring about, and in doing so it takes a clear position on the processes of collecting and exhibiting.

Rineke Dijkstra
A Retrospective

Photography | Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, United-States | Friday 29 June 2012 - Monday 8 October 2012

Since the early 1990s, Rineke Dijkstra has produced a complex body of photographic and video work, offering a contemporary take on the genre of portraiture. Her large-scale color photographs of young, typically adolescent subjects recall 17th-century Dutch painting in their scale and visual acuity. The minimal contextual details present in her photographs and videos encourage us to focus on the exchange between photographer and subject and the relationship between viewer and viewed. Rineke Dijkstra: A Retrospective brings together more than 70 photographs and five videos in a major mid-career survey, offering the most comprehensive presentation of the artist’s work to date.

Photography | Centaur Theatre Company, Montréal, Canada | Tuesday 2 October 2012 - Sunday 28 October 2012

How much do you and your family members really look alike? Quebec-based graphic designer and photographer Ulric Collette has created a project where he's exploring the genetic similarities between different members of the same family (fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, brothers, sisters, etc). By splitting their faces in half and then blending them together in a single face, he highlights the mysteries of genetic resemblances and differences and creates interesting new people that are sometimes quite normal looking and other times far from it.

Remote landscapes emblazoned by sheaths of illumination recall search and rescue disaster movies. The heavens appear to be opening for God. Early air and sea craft brave unchartered and unforgiving territories.

Diane Arbus (1923-1971) revolutionized the art she practiced. Her bold subject matter and photographic approach produced a body of work that is often shocking in its purity, in its steadfast celebration of things as they are. Her gift for rendering strange those things we consider most familiar, and for uncovering the familiar within the exotic, enlarges our understanding of ourselves.

The Photographs of Ray K. Metzker and the Institute of Design

Photography | J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, United-States | Tuesday 25 September 2012 - Friday 24 February 2012

Ray K. Metzker is one of the most innovative photographers of the last half-century. Utilizing experimental techniques such as high-contrast printing, multiple exposure, and composite images, he creates photographs that strike a unique balance between formal brilliance, optical innovation, and a deep human regard for the objective world. A graduate of Chicago's Bauhaus-inspired Institute of Design, Metzker studied with renowned photographers Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind. An introduction to the climate of intense photographic experimentation fostered by teachers and emulated by students at the school accompanies this overview of Metzker's career. The exhibition, which originated at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art (Kansas City), is supplemented by selections from the Getty Museum's permanent collection and other key loans.

«Walter Rosenblum was born in New York City in 1919 to a poor immigrant family from Rumania. Grieved by the untimely death of his mother when he was sixteen years old, he wandered the streets of his working-class neighborhood with a camera given him by an older sister and discovered the solace of photography. His early interest in the medium was fortified when he joined the Photo League, an organization of photographers interested in documenting the lives of New York’s working poor.

Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944) is renowned for his preoccupation with universal emotions such as isolation, melancholy, anxiety and love. His graphic works are amongst his most arresting and poignant, and are celebrated world-wide for their technical mastery and visual intensity. The core of this exhibition features an outstanding group of fifty works on paper by Munch held in a private Norwegian collection, and will be the first time they have been shown in the UK. Featuring rare, hand-coloured versions of iconic images such as The Scream, Anxiety and Madonna, the exhibition explores Munch’s rigorous experimentation as he revisited subjects to heighten their emotive impact.

In our time, the continuous storming of digital technology has rendered the traditional ways of understanding and experiencing art obsolete. At such a juncture, what does the ubiquitous presence of digitalized virtual reality imply for what used to be held as the truth and the essence of art? How should we comprehend the changes brought about by the rise of a virtual world? Furthermore, facing such changes, how should we reassess the traditional definitions of art? I believe that the recent works of Sun Lue-these digital static frame images in this exhibition-may help us think about such questions.
