Upcoming: Larry Clark in Conversation


Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Tuesday, February 01, 2011

Larry ClarkLarry Clark - photographer and Director of controversial and challenging films; Kids, Bully and the endearing Wassup Rockers will be holding a solo exhibition of his photographic works in London entitled What do you do for fun?


To commemorate the exhibition Larry Clark will be on stage to discuss his life and work.



Following on the success of Clark’s record breaking retrospective Kiss the Past Hello at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris in 2010, which received worldwide critical acclaim, the Zabludowicz Collection is pleased to invite you to a very special event with legendary American photographer and filmmaker Larry Clark.

Since the publication of Tulsa, his seminal 1971 photographic series which brought a disaffected generation from a normal American community into sharp focus, Clark's work has reflected and ingrained itself into the problem of American youth. The power of his photography and film lies in Clark’s quest for realism, the raw truth stripped of all prudishness gives the work its dark appeal and undeniably influential ability.

Clark’s still photography, which is filled with narrative tension has led him on to producing film and directing cult classics such as Kids (1995), Bully (2001) and Wassup Rockers (2006), films which blur the boundaries of documentary and fiction, often using untrained actors playing scenes which could be from their own lives.

What do you do for fun?, a solo exhibition of Clark’s photographs and collage works from the 1990s will take place at Simon Lee Gallery, 12 Berkeley Street, London, W1J 8DT from 10 February – 2 April 2011, Opening: Wednesday 9th February, 6 - 8pm
