Lewis Baltz | Galerie Thomas Zander

January 23 - April 2, 2016


Gallery Luisotti is delighted to announce that works by Lewis Baltz is now on display at Galerie Thomas Zander for their group show, LEWIS BALTZ, DON DUDLEY, ANTHONY HERNANDEZ, ROBERT IRWN, JOHN MCLAUGHLIN, featuring works by the five artists whose artistic roots can be traced back to California. Having developed their own, new ways of thinking about art and their distinct artistic perspectives, this exhibition crosses genre boundaries and highlights various crucial aspects of 20th and 21st century art in California.

Lewis Baltz (1945–2014) is one of the main representatives of the New Topographics-movement and his art has been groundbreaking for conceptual photography. The exhibition focuses on rarely exhibited works of the 1990s from the group Generic Night Cities, an example par excellence of his critical reflection on the spaces of human civilization in photography that positions his photographic oeuvre in contemporary art.
