Insights: New Approaches to Photography since 2000
Insights: New Approaches to Photography since 2000 is a museum quality exhibition offering works for private sale, curated by Alexander Montague-Sparey, Artistic Director, PHOTOFAIRS and Allie Haeusslein, Associate Director, Pier 24 Photography, San Francisco. The Insights exhibition is presented in two parts and focuses entirely on cutting-edge artists using technical prowess and originality to push the boundaries of the medium. Insights is a particularly relevant platform for PHOTOFAIRS as collectors are increasingly turning their attention to the collection of maverick works, unique, single-edition works, as well as works which speak to the other fine arts (painting, sculpture, installation, or video art).
"Photography has ironically come full-circle, with some 21st century artists turning to 19th century analogue techniques, for example, in new and fascinating ways to produce unique photographs. As a result, Insights gives a nod to 19th century French photography and the birth of medium. We will also witness other artists in the show who are inspired by painting and sculpture and who give photography a new lease of life. Others focus on technical prowess alone to reinvent the medium, making us double take and ask the question — What is a photograph?”.
