"In light, black, colour, white, and dark", Solo Exhibition by Jeff Wall
4 February 2012 - 1 April 2012
PinchukArtCentre 2012

The PinchukArtCentre presents the first solo exhibition by the Canadian artist Jeff Wall in Eastern Europe. The show entitled In light, black, colour, white, and dark includes 16 photographs and 7 light boxes. The exhibition is a special artist selection composing in each room delicate relations between nature, still lives and the young people on the borderline between young and mature. 

Wall’s work seems to have a continuing fascination with the tableau – the picture that hangs independently on a wall and shows us something unique and significant. Wall is prominent among the artists who over the past thirty years have brought the qualities of the tableau into photography, creating compositions that depict modern life in a manner once seemingly the province of painting alone.

Eckhard Schneider, General Director of the PinchukArtCentre: “Jeff Wall is a picture maker telling us in fascinating details the richness of our world.”

With his project the PinchukArtCentre brings together a number of Wall’s most recent works alongside a selection of his earlier pictures. The exhibition includes iconic works such as War game (2007) as well as light boxes and new opaque colour photographs, among them the monumental Band & crowd, one of his largest works.

Located on the 2nd and 3rd floor, the exhibition lasts from 4 February to 1 April 2012 in the PinchukArtCentre, Kyiv, Ukraine. Opening hours: from Tuesday through Sunday from 12 am to 9 pm. Admission is free.
