Abstract

Billingham had photography from the series 'Rays a Laugh' exhibited in 'This Infinite World', Fotomuseum Winterthur, (8 June 2013 - 16 February 2014), curated by Paul Graham. In the galleries anniversary year this was its tenth Set exhibition and captured the 20-year history of the museum in a particular way. New York-based photographer Paul Graham was invited to curate this second anniversary exhibition following Concrete – Photography and Architecture. The guest curator had carte blanche to present his personal artistic perspective on the 4,000 works that comprise the Fotomuseum Winterthur Collection. Graham not only examined the creative process behind photographic works, but also questioned the position of the photographer in our infinite world: " Painters as well as writers confront a void they have their efforts, summoning from imagination and recollection faces, dialogue, imagery, characters, and even colors. But photography from the world? It seems sometimes we have the opposite, but equally difficult prospect. That we are burdened with not on an empty page, but an overflowing one." Artists included Diane Arbus, Lewis Baltz, Bieke Depoorter, Rineke Dijkstra, William Eggleston, Luigi Ghirri, David Goldblatt, Jacob Holdt, Boris Mikhailov, Bertien van Manen & others.
