Having transcended the limits of the specificity of portrait photography intrinsic to architectural reportage, this exhibition sought to explore the relationships between architecture and the use of art photography. It undertook this exploration with 27 works of art by 9 artists who record architecture’s gestural and stylistic fields, as well as its critical contribution to contemporary art.
