Thomas Ruff: Panel & Book signing
David Zwirner is pleased to participate in Paris Photo 2012 (Stand B30) at the Grand Palais. This is the gallery’s first year at this international photography fair. On view will be works by gallery artists, including Philip-Lorca diCorcia, whose video installation, Best Seen, Not Heard (created from his well-known series, Hustlers), is currently on view in the Grand Palais as part of the exhibition, Edward Hopper; Stan Douglas, who was awarded the 2012 Infinity Award from the International Center of Photography in New York and whose solo show is on view at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts until February; American artist Gordon Matta-Clark (1943–1978) whose estate has been represented by the gallery since 1999; James Welling, whose major retrospective opens in February at the Cincinnati Art Museum and then travels to the Fotomuseum Winterthur in Switzerland, and whose critically acclaimed exhibition, Overflow, was recently on view at David Zwirner in New York; and Christopher Williams, whose solo exhibition, The Production Line of Happiness, opens at Kabinett für aktuelle Kunst in Germany on November 18.
At Paris Photo, Thomas Ruff will participate in a panel, followed by a book signing at the gallery’s stand. In his considered approach to the means and possibilities of photography, Ruff explores a breadth of themes that is reflected in the range of techniques he employs: analogue and digital exposures taken by the artist exist in his practice alongside computer generated pictures, photographs from scientific archives, and pictures culled and manipulated from newspapers, magazines, and the Internet. On view at Paris Photo will be work from the artist’s ongoing recent series, cassini and ma.r.s., as well as Nudes, Portraits, and an early series, Interieurs (1979-1983).
