"Andreas Gursky: Photographs"
2001-07-22 until 2001-09-16
ASU Art Museum
Tempe, AZ, USA

An exhibition of seven works by German artist Andreas Gursky, world-renowned for his striking, large-scale images. Gursky's photographs use the large-scale format to show vast images of a world transformed by high-tech industry, global markets and slick commerce - a world in which the individual is pictured as tiny and insignificant. Some photographs in the exhibition are as large as 10 by 17 feet.   

Gursky, born in Leipzig, Germany in 1955, studied at Germany's Leading school of traditional photography, the Folkwangschule in Essen. He also studied with photographic artist Bernd Becher at the Kunstakademi in Dusseldorf.

Andreas Gursky's work has recently exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Regen Projects in Los Angeles, Matthew Marks Gallery in New York, Sepentine Gallery in London, Kunsthalle in Dusseldorf, Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. His work was also presented in the Aperto of the 1990 Venice Biennale.
