Jeff Wall: Tableaux, Pictures, Photographs, 1996 - 2013 presents recent work in color and black and white, and features the new, previously unseen diptych Summer Afternoons (2013). Since the 1980s, Wall has produced critically acclaimed work in the form of color transparencies backlit by fluorescent light strips and presented in lightboxes. He was one of the first artists to make photographs on a large scale. The standard lightbox was created for the primary purpose of outdoor advertising. In Wall’s work, this medium became a platform for his figurative tableaux, street scenes and interiors, landscapes and cityscapes. LINK stedelijk
