July 12 – August 23, 2013
Opening reception: Friday, July 12th, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm
Gagosian Gallery is pleased to present a major exhibition of photographs by Inez & Vinoodh, following their first exhibition with the gallery in Paris earlier this year. Partners in life and work for twenty-five years, Inez & Vinoodh were among the first photographers to harness the full potential of digital manipulation in portraying the human condition. Combining the beautiful with the bizarre, the elegant with the extreme, the classical with camp, they depict human identity as exquisite corpse, the spirit of transformation that has fueled the march of art history and which has become, more than ever, a sustaining aesthetic principle of our own time.
