Co-curated by artist Eric Bell
and Ludlow 38 curatorial resident Saim Demircan
, Exhibition as Image: Art Through the Camera’s Eye
presents art documented by artists. These photographic, filmed and sculptural records of exhibitions and artworks counter the conventional high-key documentation that proliferates online today, the result of which is often the flattening of exhibitions into images.
While this particular effect has had a noticeable influence on recent art production, as well as on exhibition-making, Exhibition as Image: Art Through the Camera’s Eye
presents alternative and subjective approaches to the production of images of art that could be seen to resist this phenomenon.
