This exhibition brings together for the first time the work of seven international artists working in the field of photography—YTO BARRADA (Morocco); RINEKE DIJKSTRA (The Netherlands); CUNY JANSEN (The Netherlands); AN-MY LÊ (born in Vietnam, currently living in the US); CLARE RICHARDSON (UK); JOHN RIDDY (UK); and JOEL STERNFELD (US). It combines work by emerging artists with work by those who are more internationally renowned. Works by these artists have been exhibited previously at such major museums as the Victoria and Albert, London; the Stedelijk, Amsterdam; Museum Boymans-van Beuningen, Rotterdam; Jeu de Paume, Paris; Sprengel Museum, Hannover; and Museum Folkwang Essen. For several, this will be their premiere museum exhibition in the US.
Their images are very personal diaries of a place, exploring the evolving relationship between people and nature, rural and urban, old and new, timelessness and change, natural and artificial. It is the balance between these contrasts that lends these bodies of work a highly contemplative feel. The format of the exhibition will constitute a series of narratives or extended essays by each artist, which resonate and connect with one another.
