Most recognise the artistic dilemma of photographing family: close enough to be inspired by their foibles, too close and your subjects become posed and irritable. It’s a challenge undertaken in an exhibition next year titled Who’s looking at the family, now? which aims to engage with fundamental questions about family life, its dynamics and complexity from a host of contemporary artists and photographers.
25 years on from British curator Val Williams’ seminal exhibition, Who’s looking at the family? the exhibition will update the question into a modern context. Curator Tim Clark will feature work by fourteen artists including acclaimed British artists David Moore, Trish Morrissey and Léonie Hampton alongside artists on display for the first time in London such as Mexico City-based Mariela Sancari, Thai-born Alba Zari, Iranian Amak Mahmoodian and Lebohang Kganye from South Africa.
Who’s looking at the family, now? will show at London Art Fair next Jan 20 and you can see a sneak preview of some of the photographs below!
