Joel Meyerowitz, Paris, France, 1967
Joel Meyerowitz: Dialogues
Jan 18 – Mar 2, 2024
London, UK

Huxley-Parlour is delighted to announce a new exhibition of work by American photographer Joel Meyerowitz, his fourth with the gallery. The exhibition, which coincides with an important display at Tate Modern, explores Meyerowitz’s unique approach to colour and light. For the exhibition at Huxley-Parlour, Meyerowitz presents his work in pairs in order to reveal unexpected parallels in his imagery, while highlighting the enduring, experimental use of colour throughout his oeuvre. Meyerowitz terms the pairs featured in Dialogues ‘relational’ images; as each pair is visually linked by light, colour or composition. This curatorial concept links the two exhibitions at Huxley-Parlour and the Tate. Both use pairings to investigate the development of colour in the artist’s work, as well as his characteristic use of complex compositional structure and unresolved, non-hierarchical imagery.

Meyerowitz’s imagery marries a distinctly American aesthetic with a meditative and contemplative approach to colour. Spanning the years 1964 to 2011, the survey exhibition at Huxley-Parlour reveals Meyerowitz’s enduring interest in the sensorial, evocative experiences of his surroundings. Paired with lesser-known images from the artist’s extensive archive, the exhibition features some of Meyerowitz’s best-known imagery, including early street work and images from his seminal series Cape Light.

Meyerowitz is widely acknowledged to be one of the first photographers – amongst others such as William Eggleston and Stephen Shore – to bring colour photography from the periphery to the centre of fine art photography. Historically, where black and white photography was understood to be a serious medium, colour was widely considered to be technically inferior and aesthetically limiting – occupying the realm of advertising campaigns, television, and personal holiday photographs.

In defiance of this, Meyerowitz’s work demonstrated how the medium allowed nuanced contemplation of form, composition, and mood. The ongoing display at Tate Modern, London sees Meyerowitz’s move from colour to black and white in the 1960s, when the artist began embracing the limitations and aesthetics introduced by colour film. On view are works from A Question of Color, in which Meyerowitz, having carried around two cameras, paired black-and-white and colour prints of nearly the same scene.

  • A Model
    Feb 9 – Sep 8, 2024

    We all have ideas of what a contemporary art museum should be. Those who founded Mudam Luxembourg, for example, envisioned a museum that would encompass many aspects of contemporary culture, such as art, design and architecture. While one believes the museum to be a place for the presentation of modern art, others view it as a showcase for Luxembourgish creation. And some see Mudam as a space for collectivity, for openness, for events and an experimental approach. (more…)
