    Information

    The Alan Cristea Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition of works by Dutch artist Jan Dibbets from 21 March - 20 April 2013. The exhibition will focus on two very distinct and enduring aspects of his work, namely the Land-Sea Horizons and Colour Studies, and will be held across both of the gallery's Cork Street spaces. The show will be accompanied by a catalogue written by Brian Wallis, Chief Curator and Director of Exhibitions at the International Center of Photography, New York, and co-author of the recent Phaidon publication Land and Environmental Art.

    A pioneer of conceptualism in the 1960s, Jan Dibbets was one of the first artists to challenge traditional perceptions of the photographic image. From the outset, his work sought to deconstruct the notion that the camera was a mechanical tool whose primary function was to capture and record three-dimensional images solely to be printed onto a two-dimensional surface. To Dibbets, photography was, and still is, an artistic medium as versatile and complex as any other and one which can be used to create abstraction, figuration and directly challenge notions about how pictorial space is depicted and viewed.
