Presentation/Representation: Photography from Germany
Opening: 3.00pm Saturday 4 July 2009
Exhibition runs from 2 July – 30 August, 2009
Presentation/representation: photography from Germany brings to Melbourne the work of ten of Germany’s best contemporary fine art photographers. Curated by Thomas Weski (also curator of the survey of Thomas Gursky recently seen at the National Gallery of Victoria), Presentation/representation covers the artists work of the generation of German photographers that has followed the now-legendary Kunstakademie Düsseldorf generation of Gursky, Thomas Ruff, Thomas Struth and Candida Höfer. The exhibition shows that, in the wake of the highly formal serialism of the Düsseldorf generation, new German photography is defined by the diversity of its style and interests.
Last week C3 celebrated its 1st anniversary at the Abbotsford Convent with a great exhibition including photographic images by Greg Spiller, printed by the Colour Factory. Photographic fine art printing is just one of the Colour Factory’s many services.

C3 – Space B
Greg Spiller’s large-scale, submersive photographic images are visually sophisticated and deeply emotional. This exhibition continues his investigation towards subtle perfection within abstraction and narrative based installations.
