Photo-Poetics: An Anthology at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, November 20, 2015 – March 23, 2016

“The artists in the exhibition attempt to rematerialize the photograph through meticulous printing, using film and other disappearing photo technologies. Drawing on the legacies of Conceptualism and invested in exploring the processes and techniques of photography, they are also deeply interested in how photographic images circulate. Theirs is a sort of “photo poetics,” an art that self-consciously investigates the laws of photography and the nature of photographic representation, reproduction, and the photographic object.” — Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
