Wolfgang Tillmans


In his eighth solo exhibition with the Andrea Rosen Gallery in Los Angeles, German-artist Wolfgang Tillmans is currently presenting a new series of photographic images titled “Atair.” Tillmans continues his investigation in the nature of photography through the reinterpretation of portraits, still life and landscape imagery. Tillmans equally concerns himself with exhibition strategies that challenge traditional notions of display within a particular space. When speaking of his work the artist has stated “Accepting the insolvable nature of certain questions whilst continuing to research relentlessly is, for me, a viable way to engage reality.” While the artist’s content can change radically from piece to piece, what remains consistent is Tillman’s ability to elevate mundane images to offer new insight through shifts in scale, layout and presentation. The artist has exhibited world-wide with recent exhibitions at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in New York City, Helsinki-Festival, Taidehalli, Helsinki, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago and UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles. Next year, the artist will exhibit at the Museo Tamayo in Mexico City, Mexico.
