A solo exhibition by Josephine Pryde.

Josephine Pryde presents a new body of commissioned work consisting of a large-scale interactive sculpture and a series of photographs.

Known primarily for her photographic work, Pryde has become a major figure in the recuperation of photography as a key critical discipline in the field of contemporary art. Pryde has developed a singular style of image making that responds to methods and ideas from, amongst other sources, advertising, fashion, and portrait photography. For this exhibition, a suite of photographs depicting hands touching or handing various objects and surfaces is shown alongside a fully functioning ride-on model train. (JS)

Josephine Pryde (b. 1967, Alnwick, UK) lives and works in Berlin and London. This is her first solo exhibition in an institution in the United States, and travels to ICA Philadelphia in September 2015.

This exhibition is made possible by VIA Art Fund, Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen, British Council, and Laura and Joseph Sweeney, with special thanks to Reena Spaulings Fine Art, New York, Galerie Neu, Berlin, and Simon Lee Gallery, London.
