Mark Ruwedel – Walker Evans Revisited

October 11, 2022 – March 5, 2023

Mark Ruwedel is included in the exhibition Walker Evans Revisited, curated by David Campany, which opened at Kunsthal Helmond this week. Oct 11, 2022 – March 5, 2023

Featured in the exhibition is Ruwedel’s 1983 body of work ‘Evans Street’: a portfolio of 9 photographs of his hometown of Bethlehem, PA.

Walker Evans Revisited brings together three kinds of response from contemporary artists and photographers. Firstly, the continuation and extension of Evans’ ways of photographing everyday life—anonymous people, typical places, and vernacular buildings and objects. Secondly, the revisiting and re-photographing of locations photographed by Evans. Lastly, the exhibition presents a variety of projects by artists responding very directly to particular images by Evans. These range from appropriation and collage, to reimaginings and homage.

Walker Evans Revisited contains work by Sherrie Levine, Michael Mandiberg, Camille Fallet, Julia Curtin, Darren Harvey-Regan, Jessica Potter, James Nares, Anastasia Samoylova, Bryan Schutmaat, Patrick Pound, Ute Mahler & Werner Mahler, Stephen Shore, Mark Ruwedel, RaMell Ross, George Georgiou, Lisa Kereszi, Vanessa Winship, Cortis & Sonderegger and Walker Evans.
