Please join us for the opening of You Are Looking at Something That Never Occurred, a group exhibition tracing photography as a tool to question the boundaries between past and present, the factual and the fictional. Drawing from the Zabludowicz Collection, works produced over a 40 year period by 14 artists explore photography’s ability to suggest moments that are far from certain.

Exhibition highlights include the UK premiere of Sara Cwynar’s video Soft Film, 2016, a print from Cindy Sherman’s highly influential early series, Untitled Film Still No. 41, 1979, and a major early work by Wolfgang Tillmans, Berlin installation 1995-2000, 2000, which comprises 31 images arranged in a single composition. Pictures by Lucas Blalock and Andreas Gursky point to the varied uses of digital technology to manipulate images, and in works by Christopher Williams and Erin Shirreff contemporary responses to specific moments from art history and 20th century photography can be seen.
