William Eggleston "21st Century"
This event has ended.
This exhibition, "William Eggleston: 21st Century," showcases Eggleston's photographs taken since 2000, providing a comprehensive view of the recent work of this leading photographer. Although the works on display feature a wide variety of locations, including Eggleston's home state of Tennessee, and other places in America, Europe, and Russia, each shares Eggleston's characteristically subdued color palette and vibrant hues, almost making it seem as if they are all photographs of the same city.
Eggleston's works are characterized by the fact that they capture decidedly casual, everyday scenes that most people overlook, and yet are very painterly in their composition, with minute details that create a tautness and tension, moving the viewer.
Eggleston's work is concurrently being shown at the Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo in an exhibition called "William Eggleston: Paris-Kyoto" (June 5 to August 22, 2010). Featuring a series of works on Paris and Kyoto, the Hara Museum's show highlights scenes of these two great cities taken from Eggleston's perspective.
"William Eggleston: 21st Century" is an excellent opportunity to explore the recent work of this most influential and original photographer.
