Lorretta Lux: Photographs in Milan

On view through this week at Galleria Carla Sozzani in Milan is the solo exhibition Photographs, featuring new works by German artist Loretta Lux. The artist’s portraits of young children highlight the attention to detail, composition and color that characterize much of classical painting. In fact, she is a painter by training -influenced by Old Masters such as Diego Velázquez, Agnolo Bronzino, Philipp Otto Runge,[…..]

Javier Vallhonrat

Acaso features a series of photographs which are the result of a four-year project by fashion photographer Javier Vallhonrat. The images largely differ from the hip and glossy fashion-related work he often realized for publications such as Vogue and the New York Times.

Guy Bourdin

Milan’s Carla Sozzani hip gallery at 10 Corso Como is currently celebrating Guy Bourdin‘s provocative, masterful photography. The exhibition includes the section A Message for You, which presents a series of photographs dating back mainly to the 1970’s, and Unseen, showing works from the artist’s own archive. Seductive, glossy, sometimes disturbing and doubtlessly radical, Bourdin’s works are a perverse and superb aesthetization of recurrent themes[…..]

On view until March 19th, Gio Marconi gallery in Milan is presenting a series of large-scale printed works by American artist Wade Guyton. Displayed in the ground floor area of the gallery, Guyton’s elegant Xs and stripes are an emblematic manifestation of the concept of mechanical reproduction within the art-making process.
