Fiona Banner Curates V-A-C Collection at Whitechapel Gallery

December 9, 2014 by Ishah

Internationally acclaimed Artist Fiona Banner uncovers rarely seen works for the first in a series of four displays of the V-A-C collection at the Whitechapel Gallery.

Banner has curated the exhibition ‘Stamp Out Photographie’ which will go on display in 2014, showing from the 9th of December until the 8th of March 2015, followed by two further displays in 2015. Fiona Banner has selected works from renowned artists such as Gerhard Richter, Richard Avedon, Claude Monet and Sigmar Polke. She has drawn on self-reflective work that challenges its own medium. 

Fiona Banner says, 'The works that I was drawn to are self-reflective, they challenge their own medium: paintings that discuss themselves as reproduction; photographs that deny the image or perform some kind of act of self-portraiture; sculpture that declares the impossibility of its own authenticity - each work slumped in the psychiatrist’s chair, holding a mirror up to itself.'

Four exhibitions in total will go on show in Whitechapel’s dedicated Collections Gallery, each accompanied by a unique publication devised by the guest selector to uncover rarely seen collections from around the world supported by Hiscox.
