Louise Lawler (born 1947 in New York) is an important US-American artist. She belongs to the so-called Pictures Generation, which since the early 1980s has employed the medium of photography to critically question the role of mass media. Today, SAMMLUNG VERBUND in Vienna owns the largest Lawler collection; since its foundation in 2004, it has continuously acquired 27 works by the artist. Founding director Gabriele Schor has curated the first Louise Lawler exhibition in Vienna, currently on display at – and spanning all eight floors of – the Vertikale Galerie.

Louise Lawler’s extraordinary photographs make it clear that our perception of a work of art is always influenced by its local context. Depending on whether the artwork is located in a gallery, museum, depot, auction house, or in the private space of a collector, its meaning, presence, impact, and message changes. Lawler never manipulates or modifies the situation in which she photographs artworks. The glossy surfaces of her photographs convey a painterly impression.

Exhibition run: 15.11.2018 – 20.04.2019

Curator: Gabriele Schor
