Gesche Würfel at Civilian Art Projects

March 4th, 2010

Exhibition Gesche Würfel

Even though the Olympics are over, there is still time to see Go for Gold!; photographs by Gesche Würfel at Civilian Art Projects in DC. From the essay by Al Miner, assistant curator at the Hirshhorn, Würfel’s two series on view Go for Gold! and Farewell from the Garden Paradise “deliver visual eulogies for East London’s Lower Lea Valley. With the eye of a trained urban planner and the lyrical lens of her camera, Würfel examines dormant spaces caught between a residential past and a grand future as sites for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games…. Gesche Würfel’s work tells not of the competition between athletes, but rather between urban generations and, indirectly, between cities that vie for the wealth and power of hosting the Olympics.” The exhibition is on vieExhibition Civilian Gesche Würfelw until March 20, 2010.
