Civilization The Way We Live Now
Sep 13, 2019 – Feb 2, 2020
National Gallery Victoria
Melbourne, Australia

An international photography exhibition of monumental scale, featuring over 200 original photographs by over 100 contemporary photographers from Africa, the Americas, Asia, Australia and Europe.

Presented in collaboration with the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography, Minneapolis/New York/Paris/Lausanne and the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea, this exhibition at National Gallery Victoria explores photographic representations of life in cities and journeys through the shared experiences of life in the urban environment.

Looking at the phenomenal complexity of urban life in the twenty first century, Civilization: The Way We Live Now reflects on the ways in which photographers have documented, and held a mirror up to, the increasingly globalized world around us. The selected works create a picture of collective life around the world and document patterns of mass behavior.

Featuring artists Alec Soth, Mark Power, Taryn Simon, Richard Mosse, Pablo López Luz, Taloi Havini, and many others.

This is justified by 15 years of strong presence of the Galerie Krinzinger not only in the yearly Art Dubai Fair, but also by continuous visits of the MENA-Region and contact with the local artists, who then successfully joined the gallery program.

    Jun 6 – Oct 15, 2023
    M77 Gallery
    Milan, Italy

    Alluvion, an exhibition of the works of British artist and intellectual Mat Collishaw, curated by Danilo Eccher, will be open to the public at M77 Gallery, Via Mecenate 77, from June 7 to October 15, 2023. Alluvion represents a new landscape modelled by material deposited by floodwaters, just as digital media floods our daily life and changes the social co-ordinates through which we manage communication, making us dependent on a world increasingly mechanised and controlled by technology, an image we find in most of Collishaw’s work.
