This exhibition You Are Looking at Something That Never Occurred brings together artists who use photography as a tool with which to question the boundaries between past and present, the factual and fictional, making these notions feel less solid and more elusive. On view are artworks from the Zabludowicz Collection by 14 artists spanning 40 years, from the late 1970s to the present day. Within art photography, this period has seen the ‘decisive moment’ of street photography give way to approaches that emphasise various modes of slowness, including the semiotic analysis and appropriation of images, the staging of orchestrated moments, and the manipulation of digital files. This exhibition explores photography’s ability to suggest a past that might never have happened.
