In Notes, Queries, Marco Breuer continues his systematic investigation of the conditions of the photographic medium. For this exhibition, Breuer uses the early photographic processes of gum bichromate and cyanotype, pointing towards a moment in photography’s history when the medium was exploratory and fluid – a site for inquiry not yet dictated by conventions or expectations.
Breuer has exhibited widely throughout the United States and Europe. His work is in numerous collections, including the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University; the New York Public Library; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart, Germany. He teaches in the MFA program at Bard College. This year his work was exhibited as part of the reinstallation of the permanent collection at MoMA and in Greater New York 2005 at P.S.1.
