Moments of Reprieve: Representing Loss in Contemporary Photography

Moments of Reprieve brings together a group of artists whose work responds conceptually to the challenge of articulating loss through photography. From the personal to the political, these staged and stolen moments expand on the idea that the medium and its modes of production may point to something beyond the image, revealing as much through what they omit and conceal as the subjects they directly depict. Eschewing spectacle and explicit representation, the exhibition takes its title from the 1978 book by Primo Levi recalling the small and often unspoken gestures encountered during his imprisonment that restored a sense of humanity in otherwise inhumane circumstances.
