Presentation House Gallery's first exhibition of 2014 is opening on Friday January 24 at 7pm. Dream Location. The curator, Vancouver artist Stephen Waddell proposes fresh insights into issues that inform photography today. He has brought into dialogue works by significant international artists who have made forays into photography. Spanning the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, these analogue photographic works pose questions about the potentials of the medium. Included inDream Location are photographs by Walker Evans, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Elad Lassry, Sigmar Polke and Gerhard Richter as well as a film projection by Runa Islam. This exhibition asserts the brushstrokes of photography and the nature of depiction. Stephen Waddell is proposing that instead of continually returning to photography's discourse of invention and established canons, now is the time to ask what the medium can become.
