ON VIEW | John Divola at Tate St Ives

May 23 – September 27, 2015


Gallery Luisotti is delighted to announce John Divola’s participation in the group show Images Moving Out Onto Space in Tate St Ives, UK. The exhibition brings together eight artists—with works spanning 50 years—that resonate with different modernist practices from minimalism, kinetic art, to Op Art.

John Divola, Zuma #25, 1977/2006-

Installed in the curved gallery overlooking Porthmeor Beach will be a selection from John Divola’s 1970s Zuma series. The works observe derelict Californian beach huts over two years as they are ravaged by fire, vandalism, and the artist’s own graffiti. Mostly taken at dawn or sunset, the resulting photographs are lit in such a way as to flatten the ocean view, making its destroyed buildings appear strange and otherworldly.

The show runs from May 23 through September 27, 2015.
