a Handful of Dust
a Handful of Dust, is inspired by Man Ray and Marcel Duchamp’s Dust Breeding and was curated by renowned British writer and photographer David Campany. The exhibition is a visual journey through the last century of photography with connections that range far and wide, from aerial reconnaissance and the American dustbowl to the Middle East via conceptual art, landscape photography, still life imagery, scientific imaging and police files.
a Handful of Dust includes works by Man Ray, John Divola, Walker Evans, Edward Ruscha, Frederick Sommer, Wols, Sophie Ristelhueber, Robert Burley, Jeff Mermelstein, Bruce Nauman, Aaron Siskind, and Jeff Wall. After Pratt, the exhibit will move on to the Whitechapel Gallery in London and Stockholm’s Moderna Museet. The way Campany mixes different photographers and centers them around one important work gives the exhibit a brilliant depth of meaning.
