On 11 June, a major retrospective by Alexander Rodtschenko will open at Vienna's WestLicht Museum of Photography.
Alexander Rodtschenko (1891–1956) was among the great innovators of photography in the first half of the twentieth century. From 11 June, WestLicht Vienna will be hosting a large retrospective of the artist's work. Extreme camera angles, stark contrasts, as well as photo montages of images and text are some of the defining elements of his creative language.
Around 200 of Rodtschenko's works will be on display, addressing the many facets of an artist whose visual concepts have been seminal to the development of modern photography. Alongside famous images such as Steps (1929) and Girl with a Leica (1934), the retrospective features a broad spectrum of the artist's work.
The exhibition's Austrian premiere marks the 100th anniversary of Leica. The show is curated by Olga Swiblowa, Director of the Moscow House of Photography, and has been facilitated by Leica Camera AG in collaboration with the Moscow House of Photography Museum.
