Sanctuary

Bomb magazine visits Gregory Crewdson at his home in upstate New York to discuss his photo series Sanctuary (2009), which he shot at Cinecittà, a famous film studio outside of Rome. In contrast to his previous work, these sparse images—of deteriorated sets Crewdson discovered on the studio grounds—reveal the photographer to have intervened only minimally with his subject, eschewing artificial lighting.

Whitechapel Gallery, London
www.whitechapelgallery.org

Considering the ways in which lockdown has affected experiences of art and culture, Whitechapel Gallery’s youth forum, Duchamp & Sons, presents a virtually curated display featuring artworks drawn from the Hiscox Collection. Confined to their homes and communicating virtually, the youth collective asked “How do we imagine a space where we have spent so much time over the past months? What does it mean to curate an exhibition from our kitchens and bedrooms, with our laptops and screens?” The selected artworks transport us to faraway destinations or compel us to look closer to home. Work by Gregory Crewdson is included.

With more than two hundred works of American art from 1960 to the present day, this large-scale exhibition, whose title translates to Andy Warhol to Cindy Sherman: American Art from the Albertina Museum, aims to illustrate how much our perceptions of truth and reality, facts and fake news, owe to America’s visual culture.
