News Item: Forever Young: Rineke Dijkstra Retrospective at SFMOMA

Quote: Like her predecessor August Sander’s iconic portraits of 1920s Weimar society, the Dutch artist Rineke Dijkstra’s large-scale photographs from the early 1990s, of young bathers standing posed against the backdrop of the sea, hint at entire worlds in miniature—from the glitz of Hilton Head, South Carolina (subtly present in a fourteen-year-old girl’s silky orange bikini) to the gangly innocence of teens in Odessa, Ukraine, their Communist childhoods still fresh in memory.

February 18, 2011 – May 22, 2011

Eye Wonder: Photography from the Bank of America Collection. Drawn from Bank of America’s renowned collection of international photography, Eye Wonder features more than 100 works by a wide array of artists, including Berenice Abbott, Margaret Bourke-White, Rineke Dijkstra, Gisèle Freund, Candida Höfer, Graciela Iturbide, Dorothea Lange, and Hellen van Meene.

By selecting offbeat subjects, shooting intense close-ups, or manipulating focus and color, the artists featured in Eye Wonder have created dreamy and often haunting photographic images. As part of the modern or postmodern eras, these artists have understood that photographs offer only an illusion of reality and that the medium is as subjective a means of expression as other visual art forms, music, or literature. Highlighting photographs created from 1865 to the present, the exhibition displays a rich diversity of subjects and styles that demonstrate the artists’ firm grasp of technique. The works in Eye Wonder depict everything from landscapes, seascapes, and skyscrapers; to artists, writers, and dancers; to vegetables, flowers, and silverware. By applying dynamic techniques, the photographers suggest evocative narratives that may be read in infinite ways.

Rineke Dijkstra solo exhibition at Marian Goodman Gallery – New York City

June 29th, 2010 by

June 29 – August 21, 2010

Marian Goodman Gallery is delighted to announce an exhibition of new work by Rineke Dijkstra. On view will be three new video installations as well as related portraits.

In the North Gallery the three-channel projection I See A Woman Crying (Weeping Woman), 2009-2010 and single channel Ruth Drawing Picasso, 2009-2010 will be presented.

In the South Gallery, The Krazyhouse, Liverpool UK (Megan, Simon, Nicky, Philip, Dee), 2009-2010 will be on view. This new work continues the artist’s relationship with the city of Liverpool, where her celebrated early video work The Buzz Club, Liverpool, UK /Mysteryworld, Zaandam, NL (1996/97) was first created and where her work was recently on view in The Fifth Floor: Ideas Taking Space at Tate Liverpool.

Ruth Drawing Picasso is a single projection of a schoolgirl’s quiet observation of Picasso’s painting "Weeping Woman" (1937). Ruth sits on the floor and draws with utmost concentration the work of art in front of her. I See a Woman Crying (The Weeping Woman) consists of three projections side by side in which a panorama of school children respond to a Picasso painting. "They are looking directly at us; we are where the art is, which is of course the case given that we are standing in a gallery. It is a conceptual tautology all the more elegant for not advertising itself* an image which can double as a classical portrait as well as a social document" (Mark Prince, in frieze, 03/17/10).

For both works Rineke Dijkstra collaborated with Tate Liverpool on the occasion of the exhibition The Fifth Floor: Ideas Taking Space. For this exhibition, the museum constructed a special studio in the Tate Liverpool galleries for the artist, where the video installation I See a Woman Crying and Ruth Drawing Picasso were created. The works were inspired by school groups’ visits to the museum, and the artist subsequently worked with the school children in the constructed studio.

The 4-channel HD video-installation on view in the South Gallery, "The Krazyhouse, Liverpool, UK (Megan, Simon, Nicky, Philip, Dee)", 2009-2010 was first inspired by Dijkstra’s visit to a nightclub in Liverpool in 2008 whereupon the artist asked teenagers to come to a studio to film them dancing to their favorite tracks. The studio was constructed on the dance floor of the nightclub The Krazy House in Liverpool where the artist was able to work during the weekdays when the club was closed to the audience.

Rineke Dijkstra was born in Sittard, The Netherlands in 1959. She attended the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam from 1981-1986. She has been honored with the Citibank Photography Prize (in 1998), among others. Her work is currently on view in "Pictures by Women: A History of Modern Photography", on view through August 31st at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Recent group exhibitions include "The Fifth Floor: Ideas Taking Space", Tate Liverpool, England; "Pequeña historia de la fotografía", "Elles", Centre Pompidou, Paris France ; Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea, Santiago de Compostela, Spain in 2009 and "Collection Augustin et Isabel Coppel, Mexico: expected/unexpected", La maison rouge, Paris, France; "Facebook: Images of People in Photographs from the Collection", The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, Poughkeepsie, NY; "Street & Studio: an urban history of photography", Tate Modern, London, England in 2008.

"Rineke Dijkstra: I See a Woman Crying", with works from the Liverpool series, will be on view at Tate Liverpool thru August 30, 2010. In 2012 a retrospective exhibition of Rineke Dijkstra is scheduled at The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
