Jeff Wall

Internationally acclaimed photographer and hometown hero, Jeff Wall, is currently showing at the VAG until January 25th. This is the first solo exhibition of Wall’s work in Vancouver since 1990 (surprising) so all you Vancouverites better get out there!

    The only thing interesting about this man’s work is his presentation method.

    And, yes – I have seen his retrospective at MoMA, and read a handful of extensive articles about his work.

    Can someone in Vancouver please hire me so I can come see a sudden gust of wind big on a wall in a gallery?

    Greatly appreciated.

    I saw Jeff Wall’s exhibit at the Art Institute in Chicago and had an almost mystical experience with the piece “Invisible Man”. These photos are so large when you see them in real life. I stood across from “Invisible Man” and felt like I was in the same room with all the light bulbs. This is a scene from the book.

    Good mentioning this one jeff. Wall is probably my favorite photographer, mainly for contemporary though. His show at the VAG i managed to check out about a month ago, and some of his pieces were quite on point (like most of his work), but there were a few questionable shots…but thats just me though. If you are a fan or have not yet seen his work def check it out. The pieces Jeff posted though are not in the show thats going on (too bad, the invisible man one is mos def a fav).

  • http://courtneygriffin.wordpress.com Courtney

    Wow! These are awesome. I’m going to have to find some more of his stuff.

  • http://www.arecraft.net Eli

    I was really hoping for something a little more extensive for a Vancouver exhibition of Jeff Wall. There was some very good stuff, some questionable pieces as Jolin mentioned, but more than anything, there just wasn’t enough!

    I’m sure it’s deeper in these comments, but for those interested in the Invisible Man piece that aren’t aware– it’s based on a novel by Ralph Ellison of the same name. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invisible_Man )

    I’m a big fan of Jeff Wall but I have to agree with the Georgia Straight’s review of the exhibit, which is that it is underwhelming. I’m not sure if any of his more popular pieces made the show, with the exception of one, which probably says something more about the VAG’s permanent Wall collection rather than the artist’s ability. In fact, none of the images shown above were exhibited. For a retrospective and celebration of Wall winning BC’s most prestigious art award, the Audain, that’s pretty sad. The “Sudden Gust of Wind” is held by the MOMA, if I’m not mistaking.

    There were three pieces I quite enjoyed in exhibit: “River Road,” another which represented a sweat shop and finally “The Pine on the Corner“, a tree which sadly was removed by the homeowner in 2007.

    Nevertheless, I think the exhibit is worth seeing because of the great cinematic lightboxes are the only way in which Wall’s work is accurately is shown. It just too bad the VAG didn’t honour this lifetime achievement better. That said, I’m curious to know if the Surrey Art Gallery does a better job with Burtynsky’s exhibit this month.

    that’s quite a disappointment considering his last solo show here was nearly 20 years ago. Sudden Gust of Wind is the one everyone wants to see when they hear that Wall is showing work.

  • http://waxyphotography.com Waxy

    Yup. This is the other very Vancouver shot I would have enjoyed seeing, but it wasn’t there either…

    I saw this exhibit in San Francisco sometime this summer I think, maybe earlier.

    By the way.. that pine? It’s gone. :(

Lancaster, Pennsylvania-based artist Paolo Del Toro’s collaboration with photographer Tifani Truelove, Baba of the Woods, is a wonderfully odd combination of sculpture, costume and photography. See more images from the series and selections of Del Toro’s handiwork below.

Ultimate List of all the Best Art + Photo Tumblrs to Follow

ultimatearttumblrlist-4

 

*Update April 28th 2016 – We are continuing to update this list, removing Tumblrs that are no longer updated very frequently, and adding more as they are submitted. Please read the text below before submitting your Tumblr for consideration! Thank you all for the help, this has become an amazing resource – let’s keep it going!

 

I am compiling an extensive list of all the art and photography Tumblrs worth following. I would love your help to make this the ultimate list! Please leave a comment below with your suggestions and I will update this list with the best suggestions.

This list will focus as much as possible on Tumblrs that survey new work by different people and credit the creators of the images. Please do not submit Tumblrs that only focus on one person’s work (ie. your own personal portfolio) or mood boards that do not make any effort to link back to the source of the work.

Please share this with friends, the more input we have the better this resource will be!
