> DESCRIPTION

Jeff Wall is one of the most influential and outstanding contemporary photographers working today. He has frequently been called a modern storyteller, and his work is shaped by his profound awareness of Western art and literature. One strand of his practice is conceptual and involves small-scale, thoughtful observations of ‘things’ that appear to have been photographed in situ. The other strand comprises more complex activities, generally including people that are then meticulously re-enacted for the camera. This is a unique opportunity to see the Canadian-born artist’s work in Melbourne. Spanning 1978 to 2010, the exhibition features 26 photographs drawn from throughout his career including several large scale works and major light box transparency works such as After 'Invisible Man’ by Ralph Ellison, the Prologue 1999–2000 and the extraordinary,A Sudden Gust of Wind (after Hokusai) 1993.
