Works by English photographer Matt Henry will on view at Polka Galerie in Paris from September 10 through October 29, 2016.
Fascinated by the American politics and culture of the 60’s and 70’s, Matt Henry’s work revolves around the concept of “photographic short stories”: staged photo novels narratives in period costume that portray a dissenting America. His first monograph, Short Stories , explores the rise of progressive politics against a background of small town conservatism.
Museum Kunst der Westküste in Alkersum presents from 26 June 2016 through 8 January 2017 works by photographer Mila Teshaieva .
Developing the work over the course of two years as Artist-in-Residence at the Museum Kunst der Westküste, Föhr, the artist interacted closely with islanders and was accepted into the inner circles of island life. Created in a style reminiscent of old paintings, the work forms the island as an imaginary world, at the same time underlining a touching fragility of its real essence.
Exhibition Museum Tinguely Basel
Museum Tinguely Basel presents from June 8 through September 25, 2016 the first museum survey of acclaimed British artist Michael Landy.
The exhibition will span Landy’s entire career, bringing together works from Break Down 2001, where the artist systematically destroyed all of his possessions in a former department store in London, through to Credit Card Destroying Machine 2010, Saints Alive 2010-13, among many others.
The elaborately designed catalog is bound as a stiff soft cover with a four-sided closed block, which the reader has to »destroy« to open the book.
For 25 years now, the Swiss journalist, publicist and entrepreneur has been collecting photography with the special focus on “allure”, which will be presented from May 28 to September 04, 2016 at C/O Berlin to the public for the first time.
The Susanne von Meiss Collection representatively covers all genres and styles in the history of photography — from the 1920s through to the present and covers currently about 400 works. It includes works by internationally renowned photographers, however for the main part it does give preference to the rather unknown classics. The personal selection ranges from Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon, Rene Burri and Henri Cartier-Bresson through Horst P. Horst, Irving Penn, Paolo Roversi and August Sander to contemporary artists such as Tracey Emin, Nan Goldin, Daido Moriyama, Richard Prince and Juergen Teller.
The publication Allure will be issued to accompany the exhibition.
Extended until 2. September 2016
Works by Matthieu Gafsou will be on view at Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung in Munich from 22 January to 24 June 2016.
Entitled LIFE IS NOT A BEACH, the new exhibition addresses the dark sides of life. One example is the oppressive world of drug addicts. The photographer Matthieu Gafsou documents these in his thirty photographs in an authentic and at the same time poetically sensible manner.
