Zurich – From October until December 2017
CURATED BY DANIEL BLOCHWITZ
René Groebli will celebrate his 90th birthday this October, which Bildhalle will take as a welcomed opportunity to honor this exceptional Swiss photographer
with a comprehensive solo exhibition. In cooperation with Daniel Blochwitz, this curated gallery show will present works from René Groebli’s lifelong career. Aside from his legendary early works, like «The Eye of Love
” or «Rail Magic
”, there will be on display his experimental and ground-breaking images of movement, color and crossfade-effects. Also shown will be his lesser known or even forgotten works, such as his series from Ireland or New York
from the late 1970’s
The mix and juxtaposition of photographs taken over a period of more than six decades—with some of them presented as rare vintage prints—will provide a unique insight into René Groebli’s artistic oeuvre, underlining once again his singular position within Switzerland’s history of photography.
