Eddie Chan, John Choy, Michael Wolf / Photographer at 1a Space June 5th, 2010 - June 18th, 2010

  Curator Carl Cheng positions this group exhibition as an exercise in nostalgia, lamenting the passage of simpler times associated with the mythology of Hong Kong's first generation of public housing projects, now facing demolition in favor of buildings and estates with "better conditions in every measurable way... yet somehow colder and more alienated." At times it seems that the city's institutionally supported galleries, including 1a Space, which receives a significant portion of its... [more]
Michael Wolf’s Penetrating Lens  
Michael Wolf / Photographer at Robert Koch Gallery November 6th, 2008 - January 31st, 2009

Last week I went to 49 Geary in San Francisco to check out two promising photography shows: Horace Bristol’s historical photos from the 1930s and 40s at Scott Nichols Gallery, and Michael Wolf’s “The Transparent City” at Robert Koch Gallery. According to my MutualArt calendar the shows were about to end. In fact they weren’t, and with most of the galleries in the building closed for the holidays it wasn’t an ideal time to visit, but at least I made it there. Wolf’s photos in particular made an...

    The Zuidas (South Ax) Zuidplein, Gustav Mahlerplein, Claude Debussylaan. Surprising and often hilarious images from Google Maps Street View circulate around the internet as fast as curious virtual tourists can uncover them. I’m sure you’ve seen your fair share of these, which include crime scenes, LARPers, flashers, public urinators, digital marriage proposals, and even Norwegian spear fishermen chasing the Google van down the street. Some of these are happy accidents; others are pranks.... [more]
Transparent City   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Michael Wolf / Photographer at Galerie Wouter van Leeuwen April 11th, 2009 - May 16th, 2009

Michael Wolf (1954) verwierf alom erkenning en waardering voor zijn langlopende project over het verdichte bouwen in het explosief groeiend China. Om aan de enorme behoefte aan woningen en kantoren te voldoen, wordt de ene wolkenkrabber na de andere torenflat uit de grond gestampt. In China, en met name Hong Kong, wordt ‘verdicht' gebouwd, dus nieuwbouwprojecten pal naast elkaar. Wolf fotografeerde het eindeloos repeterende patroon van horizontale en verticale lijnen met een telelens,... [more]
The Seen City   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

        On view at the Museum of Contemporary Photography (MoCP) until the end of this month is the exhibition of Michael Wolf’s photography, “The Transparent City.” The related exhibit “Work/Place,” accompanies Wolf’s work, and is excellent in its own right and well selected to match Wolf’s imagery and themes."The Transparent City" has been a work-in-progress over several years: in 2005 Wolf, a German-born artist based in Hong Kong, visited Chicago for the first time to present work in a...
