William Wegman 30 years of polaroids at Sperone Westwater, New York

(William Wegman Dressed and Undressed will be on exhibit at the Sperone Westwater Gallery through 28 October 2017)

New York, NY: Sperone Westwater is pleased to announce William Wegman Dressed and Undressed, a show of 20 x 24 Polaroids spanning over 30 years of work and exhibited for the first time in the artist’s sixth solo exhibition at the gallery. Installed on two floors of the gallery, this exhibition focuses on Wegman’s use of the 20 x 24 Polaroid camera to explore the nature of transformation and illusion, and with the help of his Weimaraner muses, to upend expectations of what it means to be human. A unique and instantaneous record of a moment, it is impossible to edit or change a Polaroid. What you see is what you get and this immediately appealed to Wegman, whose work in the 1970s often explored and exposed the photographic methods and conventions which normally remain hidden. Wegman first worked with the 20 x 24 Polaroid camera in 1979." (READ MORE...speronewestwater.com)
