US based, German born artist Josephine Meckseper has just been named as one of two artists to be included in the New Photography 2008 exhibition at Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York. According to the website “Since its inception in 1985, the annual New Photography exhibition series has introduced the work of sixty-five international artists.
This year’s exhibition highlights the individual achievements of Josephine Meckseper (German, b. 1964) and Mikhael Subotzky (South African, b. 1981). Each artist’s works exemplify recent developments in art: the reinvention of documentary photography to picture the diverse conditions of everyday life in South Africa in Subotzky’s case, and the expanding of the medium of photography into a series of artistic operations that expose the thin line between advertising, politics and fashion in Meckseper’s case. Both artists’ endeavors attest to photography’s potential to construct, document, and engage with meaning in the world today.”
Amazingly, you can still buy one of Josephine Meckseper’s photographs from Printed Matter for a mere US$350 which considering the amount of exposure the artist has received in recent years is an extraordinarily small price to pay. I bought one and so should you before they are all sold out. You can purchase one of the photos from Printed matter by clicking the buy now buttons below or go here for more info:
