Over the course of a nearly fifty-year career, the Canadian artist Jeff Wall has transformed our understanding of photography and pushed the medium into the centre of fine art practice. Since first presenting a photograph as a transparency in a lightbox in 1978, Wall has composed images that reflect and actualise social and historical narratives through a critical synthesis of artistic strategies from popular culture, cinema, literature, and painting.
Texts by Philipp Kaiser, and Jane Weinstock with James Welling.
