Pace/MacGill Gallery is pleased to participate in the 50th Edition of Art Basel. The gallery will feature a selection of works by photographers and estates across its program, such as Harry Callahan, Peter Hujar, Richard Learoyd, Richard Misrach, Irving Penn, and Michal Rovner, among others.
A dedicated portion of the booth will explore the myriad ways artists have embraced and employed multi-part, serial, and sequential imagery throughout 20th- and 21st-century photography. This presentation will include Richard Avedon’s group portraits of cultural and political figures from the late 1960s and early 1970s, as well as Paul Graham’s eight-frame visual vignette of California life from a shimmer of possibility, 2004 – 2006. A large-scale, seven-panel composition of 1962 Tokyo subway commuters by the Japanese photographer Hiro will also be on view, alongside a 28-print portfolio by Sol LeWitt, a photo-sequence by Duane Michals, Yoshitomo Nara’s recent diptychs, and Tomoko Sawada’s grid of 100 passport-sized self-portraits.
In addition to a new video work by Michal Rovner, the gallery will also exhibit David Hockney’s latest foray into computer-manipulated photography, and is pleased to debut Carmen Winant’s Sensation, 2019. Presented in collaboration with Fortnight Institute, this found-image piece is informed by Audre Lorde’s text, Uses of the Erotic: The Erotic as Power.
