Exhibition - Hanover - America Miscellaneous: Photographs from the United States and Canada Art - Culture

Hanover (DPA) – “True Pictures?” Under the title Sprengel Museum Hannover Saturday shows an exhibition with photographic art from the United States and Canada from the 1980s to the present day. A total of 339 works can be viewed, including paintings by stars such as Cindy Sherman, Nan Goldin and Jeff Wall. The show, which runs until February 13, aims to trace the transition from the documentary genre to autonomous artistic photography. Visitors experience how digitization affects photographic art. The youngest generation – artists such as Latoya Ruby Frazier and Martín Gutierrez – are interested in questions of social identity, gender and sexuality.

Curator Stefan Gronert said Thursday that photo art in North America has been very strongly shaped by female artists over the past 40 years. Cindy Sherman (67) shows early work in which she stages herself in fictional film scenes. Next to it are two large-format self-portraits – a beautiful woman in the style of an old master, one rather young and lined with long stockings, shorts and a bomber jacket. The show’s poster comes from Gutierrez, who, like Sherman, often staged himself in his photographs – often with mannequins. Flowing identity is the main theme of the artist, who was born in 1989.

The associate partner is the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, where the exhibition “True Pictures? Latoya Ruby Frazier und Menschenbuilder” will be shown until April 10. The third exhibition of the project can be seen at the Museum of Photography Braunschweig. The collaboration partner is also the Museum der Moderne Salzburg.
