This exhibition, the first assessment of the full scope and breadth of Roy Lichtenstein’s career since his death in 1997, aims to offer a new, scholarly assessment of the work of this foremost Pop artist. Lichtenstein is an artist whose work is widely known, reproduced, copied, and parodied—he is an artist that we seem to know well but in fact the true diversity and complexity of his oeuvre is little understood.

Edward Abbey once wrote “You can't study the darkness by flooding it with light.” The photography of Scott B. Davis is charged with the same notion. Originally from Maryland, Davis emulated the westward journey of Charles Fletcher Lummis and was bewitched by the spirit of the desert and its magical transformation at day’s end. Studying photography at the University of New Mexico, he discovered his passion and his destiny. Davis remains fascinated by the desert landscapes and towns of California with his new work concentrating on subjects closer to his home in San Diego.

Driving through these dry and remote areas of Australia, she found herself pulled towards the isolated bodies of water that dot the landscape. These waterholes dictated the path of her travels, crossing the parched earth of the day to arrive at waters edge by afternoon.

Pausing Virtual Images
Photography | 798 Photo Gallery, Beijing, China | Saturday 14 July 2012 - Saturday 18 August 2012
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.

On the spot, Szarkowski offered Penn an exclusive exhibition.

The exhibition at CAMERA WORK shows works from the photographic oeuvre of Ralph Gibson that have been created over a period of 40 years – from the mystic-surrealistic photographs taken from the world-famous series »The Somnambulist« and works from his series »Deja-Vu« and »Days at Sea« to his recent nudes. Within Ralph Gibson’s body of work, the connecting characteristics of his visual concepts are a pronounced use of powerful black and white contrasts and a distinguishing graininess of the silver gelatine prints. The diversity of motives and subjects does not dampen the mysterious aura inherent in the photographs, blurring the lines between realism, surrealism, expressionism and metaphysic imagery.

Rosenquist began the painting F-111 in 1964, in the middle of the Vietnam War. He positioned his main subject, the F-111 military plane, which was in development at the time, flying through fragmented images of consumer products and references to war. Through its expansive network of colliding visual motifs, F-111 addresses the connections between the Vietnam War, income taxes, consumerism, and advertising.

In "Planet Lovigin" the artist takes the reader along in a fairy-tale road trip through his Russian homeland and the Caucasus region. The pictures frequently sport the artist’s handwritten commentaries, or he furnishes them with ornaments. Lovigin travels the planet, casting his ironic gaze on things and people, overdrawing a cliché here and there, and yet always displaying evident affection for his subjects. The artist likes to call his work the »Soul Kitchen« of photography (Kehrer Verlag)
