James Welling: Autograph
WINTERTHUR (ZÜRICH)  •  Fotomuseum Winterthur  •  Ongoing
The Los Angeles-based James Welling (born 1951) operates in the hybrid ground between painting, sculpture, and traditional photography. For over 40 years he has explored issues of presentation and abstraction in his work, and is equally esteemed by critics, artists, and collectors as a central figure of international contemporary photography. The exhibition Autograph presents Welling’s documentary-style photographs in the tradition of classical art photography, as exemplified by Paul Strand. In addition, the exhibition showcases Welling’s abstract photograms, which recall works by avant-garde artists such as László Moholy-Nagy, Christian Schad, and Man Ray. Yet another highlight are the unique creations from the artist’s Degradés series.

Curated by Thomas Seelig, the exhibition is accompanied by the book James Welling – Monograph.
