An exhibition of new photographs by Jeff Wall is on view at Marian Goodman Gallery in New York. The exhibition presents pictures created over the last two years. In these new works the artist continues to address the neo-realist and near-documentary concerns at the core of his practice for the past decades. In a separate installation, in the adjacent North Gallery Viewing Room, three pictures created in Sicily in the Fall of 2007 are shown together for the first time.
Over the course of Jeff Wall’s career, his versatile and disciplined approach to the possibilities of the medium of photography to ‘paint modern life’ has resulted in a body of work notable in its attention to composition, scale, color and construction and for its hybrid integration of the documentary and the cinematographic, the ‘street’ and the monumental, two directions he has pursued simultaneously, while being partial to neither.
Until January 21, 2012
