Jeff Wall: Visibility

Jeff Wall: Visibility 

Jeff Wall (b. 1946, Vancouver) is one of the most important and fascinating artists today, and undoubtedly one of those responsible for establishing photography at the forefront of contemporary art. In the works presented here, from his early days to the present – varying in techniques and topics, from street photography in his "near-documentary" style, quotes and complex and original references to art history to reconstructed "cinematographic" style – the distinction between the commonplace and the spectacular is blurred, and the topics of masterpieces are converted to everyday simplicity.

Research for the catalogue and its publication in cooperation with the Shpilman Institute for Photography.
