POLAROID IMPOSSIBLE exhibition on June 17 at Westlicht. Museum of Photography in Vienna.

by JamesNYCJune 1. 2011 10:45

we are excited to inform you about the opening of the POLAROID [IM]POSSIBLE exhibition on June 17 at Westlicht. Museum of Photography in Vienna.

A SUMMER FULL OF ANALOG PASSION


POLAROID [IM]POSSIBLE from June 17 – August 21 WestLicht

The exhibition POLAROID [IM]POSSIBLE opens on June 16 in Westlicht. Museum of Photography and is a pure celebration of the past, present and future of analog instant photography.



An inspiring, never before seen profile of the Polaroid Collection


The exhibition shows a representative profile of the recently saved, legendary, European part of the Polaroid Collection, featuring works by photographers such as Ansel Adams, Helmut Newton, Mary Ellen Mark or Andy Warhol. The eye catcher are large format Polaroids (20x24 inch) taken with a special custom made camera. Conceptual art such as collages, opulent arrangements and trendy staging reflect the zeitgeist of the 70s and 80s. Next to the big names, there are also many works of outstanding photographers unknown on the art market until now.



New and exciting Impossible Instant Artworks
Beyond, the exhibition is complemented with fresh photographs taken on new Impossible film by artists such as Nobuyoshi Araki or Stefanie Schneider. The unique Impossible film materials, invented and produced at the former Polaroid factory in Enschede (NL), push analog instant photography beyond all traditional limits and offer a new, broad range of possibilities, characteristics and results, appreciated by international photographers. A selection of those contemporary, analog instant photography cooperations will be presented at the exhibition.

  The specific authenticity and unique magic of instant art communicate a broad range of important genres and innovative processes. In the exhibition, they are presented alongside the various camera and film types. A companion book „From Polaroid to Impossible / Masterpieces of Instant Photography – The Westlicht Collection“ is published by Hatje Cantz. (German-English, 192 pages, contains ca.200 colorful plates, hardcover with book jacket, € 39,80).
