Distance and Desire:
Encounters with the African Archive

Curated by Tamar Garb

June 9, 2013 – May 17, 2015

The Walther Collection is pleased to present Distance and Desire: Encounters with the African Archive. This exhibition brings together late-nineteenth and early-twentieth-century portraits, cartes de visite, postcards, album pages, and books from Southern and Eastern Africa, set in dialogue with recent photography and video by contemporary artists who have engaged with photographic archives. Distance and Desire offers new perspectives on the legacy of anthropological and ethnographic visions of Africans, reimagining the poetic and political dimension of the archive, its diverse histories, and its changing meanings.

Typology, Taxonomy and Seriality: Photography from The Walther Collection
Les Rencontres d'Arles
July 7—September 21, 2014

The Walther Collection presents Typology, Taxonomy and Seriality at Les Rencontres d'Arles in Arles, France, from July 7—September 21, 2014. Curated by Brian Wallis, the exhibition investigates how artists utilize the formal tools of classification to challenge the synthetic conventions of photographic realism. Typology, Taxonomy and Seriality featues photography by artists from Europe, Africa, China, Japan, and North America, addressing the developments of serial imagery, conceptual sequences, portraiture and identity, and time-based performance. Employing narrative and history, and repetition and difference, the artists visualize individual and collective expression. In so doing, they illuminate an ongoing dialogue about the social uses of documentary photographs.
