Luma’s forthcoming exhibition, Picture Industry: A Provisional History of the Technical Image, 1844–2018, is a major project exploring the rich history of mechanically-reproduced imagery from the nineteenth century to the present, organized by visual artist and theorist Walead Beshty.
The exhibition features over three hundred artworks and objects by approximately one hundred contributors, and includes photography, time-based media, painting and drawing, video, collage, room-size installations. A substantial collection of books and magazines— culled from the artist’s extensive personal archives and various public collections and spanning a visual history of over one hundred and fifty years—weaves throughout the exhibition, reinforcing the themes of the show.
The project is further supported by a parallel rotating program of screenings of film-and video-based artworks.
