For Immediate Release

July 27, 2011

WILLIAMSTOWN, MA—Jay A. Clarke, Manton Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs, will present a gallery talk on the Clark's summer installation Spaces: Photographs by Candida Höfer and Thomas Struth on Wednesday, August 3 at 12:30 pm. The curator of Spaces, Clarke will take visitors behind the scenes with a discussion about each artist’s work and how the installation came to be realized at the Clark. The talk is free with admission. Spaces is on view through September 5.

The large-scale photographs featured in the installation Spaces: Photographs by Candida Höfer and Thomas Struth offer distinct but connected perspectives on the ways individuals interact with the spaces they inhabit. Both Höfer and Struth engage with history and the passage of time. Höfer’s photographs of libraries, auditoriums, and research centers are uninhabited by people but filled with light and the mystery of visual and intellectual contemplation. Struth’s works capture church and museum visitors engaged in the act of looking, as we, the viewers of the photographs, observe them from a physical and temporal distance.

The Clark is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Massachusetts. The galleries are open daily in July and August, 10 am to 5 pm. Admission is $15 June 1 through October 31. Admission is free for children 18 and younger, members, and students with valid ID. For more information, call 413 458 2303 or visit clarkart.edu.
