Griffin Art Projects is happy to present a panel on the life and work of Lewis Baltz. Collectors Claudia Beck, Vancouver, and David Knaus, Palm Springs, will be joined by Vancouver artist Christos Dikeakos for a lively afternoon discussion.
Drawn entirely from the private collection of David Knaus, Palm Springs, the exhibition is an opportunity to experience Baltz’s early work in its intended form, organized in grids of images from portfolios of serial shots. This is the first solo exhibition of Lewis Baltz’s concept driven photography in Vancouver. At this time, we are also presenting a concise Selection from the Collection of Claudia Beck and Andrew Gruft to further explore the stark photographic mode that, along with Lewis Baltz, gained attention through the 1975 exhibition New Topographics.
This exhibition has been made possible with the generous support of collectors David Knaus, Claudia Beck and Andrew Gruft, Theresa Luisotti and everybody at Gallerie Luisotti, Los Angeles, Griffin Art Foundation, and our dedicated board and staff.
