MoMA's Must-See New Photography 2012 Exhibition
Posted by Justin Case — 29 Nov 2012
Associate Curator, Eva Respini, has sought to highlight MoMA's commitment to the work of less familiar artists, representing the variety and vitality of today's contemporary photography - amid the saturation of our current environment. Her vision extends beyond the work and the artists chosen, to the very installation of the show - with traditional framed photography complemented with other configurations and even lithographic wallpaper.
The exhibition's featured artists include:
Michele's studio work combines common objects with nude males to create images that renegotiate the creative process of studio photography.
Birdhead (Ji Weiyu, Chinese, b. 1980; and Song Tao, Chinese, b. 1979)
Ji Weiyu and Song Tao work together, capturing energetic photographs of their hometown, Shanghai.
Anne juxtaposes conventional still-life with appropriation to create meticulously arranged compositions.
Zoe assembles a variety of tourist and other posed images to inhabit the space between fantasy and documentary.
Shirana shoots classical portraiture, still life and landscapes, often translating and repeating images in different media to expand the boundaries of photography.
