Laden with intriguing subtext, Jeff Wall’s preconceived photographs capture modern life whilst referencing the history of art and literature.
The latest exhibit of photography’s “Painter of Modern Life”, will end its Chicago run in eleven days at the Art Institute. Originating earlier this year at MOMA New York, this traveling exhibition will conclude its tour at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art from October 27 through January 27, 2008.
A website dedicated to the exhibition features eighteen high resolution photographs plus “excerpts from the artist’s essays and interviews”. A more complete oeuvre of his work can be viewed via Tate Online.
