Nadav Kander series of upcoming exhibitions
Photographic artist Nadav Kander will be exhibiting in a series of exciting new exhibitions throughout summer and autumn 2014, starting with his new body of work Dust on show at Flowers Gallery, London in September…
10 September – 11 October
Private View: Tuesday 9 September 6 – 8PM
Rooted in an interest in the ‘aesthetics of destruction,’ Kander’s new series Dust explores the vestiges of the Cold War through the radioactive ruins of secret cities on the border between Kazakhstan and Russia. Fascinated by the area’s past and driven by discovery, Kander’s photographs portray stark fact and bleak setting with a characteristic poeticism.
Prix Pictet Retrospective
7 July – 21 September
Les Rencontres d’Arles have invited Prix Pictet to display a retrospective exhibition showcasing new work by past winners. Nadav Kander will exhibit alongside Benoit Aquin, Mitch Epstein and Luc Delahaye, creating a show which demonstrates the photographers’ continued efforts to engage with the public on matters of sustainability.
25 September – 11 January
18 leading photographers have been chosen to exhibit in Constructing Worlds, a Barbican exhibition which explores the ability of architectural photography to reveal wider truths about society. Over 250 works taken between the 1930’s and the present day will take viewers on a global journey through twentieth and twenty-first century architecture.
Yangtze The Long River
20 August – 23 December
Yangtze The Long River was photographed over a period of three years, capturing scenes along the third longest river in the world. Using the river as a metaphor for constant change, Kander attempted at every stage of the journey to relate and reflect the consequences of the incomprehensible and seemingly unnatural development in modern-day China.
