Opening reception: November 1, 8pm
This photographic installation marks the first North American exhibition by Swiss visual artist and bookmaker Batia Suter. Recently exhibited at The Photographers’ Gallery, London and Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt in conjunction with the 2018 Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize, Suter’s installation explores salient themes in contemporary photography, such as the archive and the legibility of images with digital proliferation. Suter’s constellation of photographic reproductions are drawn from thousands of books. In response to the gallery’s location in a rainforest landscape, she will produce a large-scale collage of nature images. Based in the Netherlands, Suter has published numerous artist books and has exhibited widely, most recently at Le Bal in Paris that extended to photographic murals in a railway station.
Tours of Batia Suter will be hosted every Saturday at 2PM. To join the tour, meet at the ground floor lobby at 1:55PM. These tours are recommended for general visitors as an introduction to the exhibition.
For a more tailored experience, visitors are encouraged to book a private guided tour with a member of our curatorial team. For more information about private tours, visit the Contact Us page, or email email@example.com.
