Words

"In a dramatic departure from tradition, The Huntington presents the first exhibition of contemporary paintings and sculpture to be displayed inside the Huntington Art Gallery, showcasing the work of Los Angeles–based artists Lesley Vance and Ricky Swallow. The stately Beaux Arts mansion that was once the home of Henry and Arabella Huntington is renowned for its collection of European art. In “Lesley Vance & Ricky Swallow,” the artists’ contemporary work is placed in the context of the gallery’s Old Master paintings, Renaissance bronzes, 18th-century French decorative arts, and British grand manner portraits".

Luigi Ghirri: Project Prints

01

Image

—01. Published by JRP Ringier.

Words

"In the early 1970s Luigi Ghirri delved into fundamental ideas about the role of photography in contemporary art. As he began to structure his first series he often created "maquettes" in order to visualize his work and think about it. In the early 1980s, as he probed deeper in his search for expression on the subject of landscapes, Ghirri started producing larger negatives, clearly not for the sake of technique itself, but rather to "get inside" the subject more intensely. Thanks to these master copies, Ghirri was able to produce excellent contact prints, small photographs that he could cut out, file, and line up in order to see each image, plan his series, organize his own view; he could leave the images loose and bring them together again in endless combinations".
