Comprising some 30 photographers, this group exhibition with the horse as its common denominator reflects our relationship with this powerful, spiritual, beautiful and hard-working animal. Aiming to widen the representation of the horse and its various contexts and cultures, the exhibition curator, Sophie Mörner, in collaboration with Fotografiska, has brought together some 100 works in order to highlight issues of the contemporary role of the horse, all in a multi-dimensional presentation in which photographers, queer theoreticians and horse nerds will all find something of interest.
In celebration of NMWA’s 30th anniversary, Revival presents contemporary sculptors and photo-based artists whose arresting aesthetics and intense subject matter spur viewers into a transcendent encounter with the art object.
