On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of its 'New Photography' series, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York, puts works of 19 artists and artist collections of 14 countries on display. Through March 20, 2016.
'New Photography', MoMA’s longstanding exhibition series of recent work in photography and a vital manifestation of the Museum’s contemporary program, will return this fall in an expanded, biannual format. On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, 'New Photography' is expanding to 19 artists and artist collectives from 14 countries, and includes works made specifically for this exhibition.
Probing the effects of an image-based post-Internet reality, 'Ocean of Images' examines various ways of experiencing the world: through images that are born digitally, made with scanners or lenses in the studio or the real world, presented as still or moving pictures, distributed as zines, morphed into three-dimensional objects, or remixed online. The exhibition’s title refers to the Internet as a vortex of images, a site of piracy, and a system of networks, which is reflected in the work of the 19 included artists and collectives. 'Ocean of Images' presents new and recent bodies of work that critically redefine photography as a field of experimentation and intellectual inquiry, where digital and analog, virtual and real dimensions cross over. Coinciding with the opening of the exhibition, MoMA will also launch an online platform housing the live archive of the New Photography series, featuring documents and images from its history.
The artists in 'Ocean of Images' are: Ilit Azoulay (Israeli, b. 1972), Zbyněk Baladrán (Czech, b. 1973), Lucas Blalock (American, b. 1978), Edson Chagas (Angolan, b. 1977), Natalie Czech (German, b. 1976), DIS (Collective, founded in New York in 2010), Katharina Gaenssler (German, b. 1974), David Hartt (Canadian, b. 1967), Mishka Henner (Belgian, b. 1976), David Horvitz (American, b. 1982), John Houck (American, b. 1977), Yuki Kimura (Japanese, b. 1971), Anouk Kruithof (Dutch, b. 1981), Basim Magdy (Egyptian, b. 1977), Katja Novitskova (Estonian, b. 1984), Marina Pinsky (Russian, b. 1986), Lele Saveri (Italian, b. 1980), Indrė Šerpytytė (Lithuanian, b. 1983), and Lieko Shiga (Japanese, b. 1980).
