EXIT #09 – Spaces for art

Many artists have chosen the exhibition space as the axis of their vision, conceiving new artworks using the space that will host the piece. EXIT #09 – Spaces for art plays homage to the idea of art, the collector, the artist and most importantly the spectator. Museums, exhibition halls, warehouses and art galleries, artist studios, fairs, public spaces and private houses where the art is protagonist, is a reoccurring theme in current photography.

Art’s habitat, its places and spaces are reflected from different perspectives: through the images of Louise Lawler as central artist and an extensive analysis of her work by Birgitt Pelzer; with portfolios dedicated to Candida Höfer, Karen Knorr, Richard Ross and Montserrat Soto; and with more images from artists such as Thomas Struth, Matthew Barney, Vanessa Beecroft, Jeff Wall, Victor Burgin, Sophie Calle, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Rafael Navarro, Elliott Erwitt, Patrick Faigenbaum, Andreas Gursky, Txomin Badiola, Doug Hall, Carles Congost, Zoe Leonard, Christian Milovanoff, Jordi Bernadó, Jane Brettle, Gonzalo Puch, Miguel Trillo, Ian Wallace and María Zárraga, amongst others, accompanied by texts written by Javier Hernando and Liliana Albertazzi which focus on the theoretical aspects of the subject.

Art as self-reference, as a meta-language dotted with quotes, has been one of the key features of international movements since the 80s. In parallel to the growth and renewal of the idea of the museum and art centre and the proliferation of new container art around the world, through photography the artist has tried to redefine the place in which the echoes of the artworks, object or its aura, presence and memory are amplified.
