All sale proceeds will help artists who are impacted by the war in Ukraine to gain safety by facilitating emergency travel, shelter and financial support.

This initiative was organized by Adam Broomberg in partnership with recom ART GmbH & Co. KG. 

The prints are available for sale here until 30 April.

Hugh Edwards Lecutre: Thomas Struth and Janice Guy in Conversation (Artist Talk)

As part of the annual Hugh Edwards Lecture, Thomas Struth joins Janice Guy, photographer and gallerist, for a conversation on their life and work.

Janice Guy and Thomas Struth’s professional and creative paths have been intertwined since the 1970s. Struth helped preserve Guy’s photographs when she turned from art studies in Düsseldorf to gallery work in Naples; Guy in turn introduced Struth to museums, people, and places that would prompt important work. The two close friends will discuss aspects of art arising from these personal intersections together with curator Matthew Witkovsky, a long-standing acquaintance of both artists.

The annual Hugh Edwards Lecture in Photography honours the memory of Hugh Edwards, curator of photography from 1959 to 1970. A tribute to Edwards’s tremendous dedication and achievements during his time at the Art Institute, this annual lecture has been established to bring internationally renowned practitioners in photography to as broad an audience as possible.

Ida Ekblad's A DEADLY SLUMBER OF ALL FORCES is now part of the collection of the Kistefos Sculpture Park in Jevnaker, Norway. Hand-painted, this momumental, site-specific sculpture is the largest sculptural work of the artist to date.

Structurally, the work is composed of four parts that are assembled by applying the cubist method of a jigsaw-puzzle-like composition of elements that are outlined in flat surfaces. Ekblad reinvigorates the technique and creates a multi-perspective synthesis of mind and memory. While the cubists most often de- and reconstructed a figurative element, Ekblad mainly uses abstract patterns in her compositions, like the maritime blue and the white Breton stripes which unfold like butterfly wings in the topmost element of the sculpture.

“The mind is inhabited with trillions of pieces and here is where my source material naturally derives from or is being molded; I chop it and pitch it and move it about, turn it inside out, block print it and roll it up. Although it could be old moldy memories or references, I search for a ‘futurism’ of it all. Whether clogged up of dystopian Philip K Dick-esque nightmares or very sweet, sad post-rave after-glow introspective moods. I hope, like William Wordsworth, that my future mind 'Shall be a mansion for all lovely forms'.” – Ida Ekblad

"Painting to me works like a secret, like shrouded poetry, it's a container of a very precise language, much more articulate than any language formed by alphabets could ever dream of being." – Ida Ekblad

Archive Matrix Assembly: The Photography of Thomas Struth 1978–2018 (publication)

Archive Matrix Assembly: The Photography of Thomas Struth 1978–2018 presents the first comprehensive, systematic theory of Thomas Struth’s main body of photographic work from its beginnings in the late 1970s until his most recent work in 2018. The book presents a unique, evolutionary understanding of the work, proposing that it has established three stages of production: archive, matrix, and assembly. Together the three stages form a developmental system that characterizes the individual photographs, their relation to their subject matter, and how they form larger, significant collections of images. The book project accomplishes three main goals: it develops a comprehensive critical reading of the work, it serves as a monograph of the artist, and it provides an extensive analysis of the photographs at all stages, including the less discussed, more recent photography, which is placed on par with the earlier work for which Struth first became internationally renowned.
