Jeff Wall: Exposure

November 3, 2007–January 20, 2008

Jeff Wall: Exposure introduces four new large-scale black-and-white photographs by the Canadian artist Jeff Wall. Presented publicly for the first time in this exhibition, the new work is shown alongside earlier pieces—both black-and-white photographs as well as transparencies mounted in light boxes—to create an ensemble that resonates formally and thematically. Wall has long been interested in the language of Realism, in the values and aesthetics of representing daily life. All the pictures realistically portray desolate places and people in straitened circumstances typical of contemporary society.
