Still image of Jeff Wall: Six Works - 10 parts

Many artists who have worked with photography have resisted the appeal of the single image, exploring instead photography’s connections to documentation or emphasising its serial potential. Jeff Wall, however, has been at the forefront of a group of artists whose tableau photographs demand the kind of sustained attention traditionally reserved for painting or sculpture. Each speaker at this symposium has been invited to talk about a single work by Wall, analysing its distinctive character in terms of intention, production, encounter and interpretation.
