Author: Celant, Germano
Price: Not Available
Description: Milan: Skira, 2010. 30cm., hardcover, 432pp. illus., more than 300 in color. Exhibition held at Triennale, Milan. Summary: What gets under your skin? What undoes you? Is it the act of depicting, the implicit voyeurism, or the thing itself? Disquieting Images is a confluence of photographic projects from the past forty or so years, cohering in an array of real albeit disparate experiences. Each of the twenty-four bodies of work here insists that attention be paid, by virtue of what it conveys, how it is perceived, how it challenges, what it says, and what is left unsaid. Disquieting Images is a projective inquiry, a provocation to actively engage. Artists: Diane Arbus, Letizia Battaglia, Nina Berman, Elena Dorfman, Donna Ferrato, Julio César Aguilar Fuentes, Nan Goldin, Pieter Hugo, Alfredo Jaar, Philip Jones Griffiths, Sally Mann, Robert Mapplethorpe, Mary Ellen Mark, Richard Misrach, James Nachtwey, Michael Nichols, Paolo Pellegrin, Gilles Peress, Eugene Richards, Lise Sarfati, Stephanie Sinclair, Brian Weil, Kohei Yoshiyuki, Zalmaï. ^Forthcoming^.
