Shadow Catchers: Camera-less Photography-London, Through February 20th

The essence of photography lies in its seemingly magical ability to fix shadows on light-sensitive surfaces. Normally, this requires a camera. Shadow Catchers, however, presents the work of five international contemporary artists – Floris Neusüss, Pierre Cordier, Susan Derges, Garry Fabian Miller and Adam Fuss – who work without a camera. Instead, they create images on photographic paper by casting shadows and manipulating light, or by chemically treating the surface of the paper.

Images made with a camera imply a documentary role. In contrast, camera-less photographs show what has never really existed. They are also always ‘an original’ because they are not made from a negative. Encountered as fragments, traces, signs, memories or dreams, they leave room for the imagination, transforming the world of objects into a world of visions.

American Streamlined Design– Tulsa, Through May 15th

The twentieth century reveled in machines and the speed they made possible. Sleek aerodynamic styling embodied a new and modern beauty. From the late 1920s to the 1950s, streamlining became the popular American design idiom for objects ranging from toy scooters to typewriters. This exhibition features more than 180 objects by such designers as Raymond Loewy, Henry Dreyfuss, Norman Bel Geddes and Walter Dorwin Teague.

Suprasensorial: Experiments in Lights, Color, and Space– Los Angeles, Through February 27th

Suprasensorial: Experiments in Light, Color, and Space, is the first museum exhibition to situate pioneering Latin American artists among the international canon of those working with light and space. The exhibition presents Latin America as the source of new ideas about the nature and function of art through the re-creation of important large scale installations by five highly regarded and influential artists: Carlos Cruz Diez, Lucio Fontana, Julio Le Parc, Hélio Oiticica and Neville D’Almeida, and Jesús Rafael Soto. The exhibition aims to illuminate the field by expanding the dialogue surrounding light-and-space practices in contemporary visual art beyond the California tradition of the late ’60s and ’70s, to include pivotal Latin American impulses expressed more than a decade earlier.
