On the occasion of the biennial exhibition format 20/20vision at Christophe Guye Galerie Zürich, the gallery together with publisher Sturm & Drang is presenting a 144-page catalog extending on the spirit of the exhibition.
In optometry, 20/20 vision stands for optimal visual acuity, and it points to the creative principle behind the exhibition: 20 experts (10 national/10 international) were each invited to nominate one artist who in their opinion has not yet received the recognition he or she deserves. At the same time, the artists’ understanding of themselves and their approach to the photographic medium corresponds to the focus of the publication: presenting creators of art who – within the context of contemporary art – have occupied themselves in diverse ways and intensively with photographic techniques, without thereby reducing themselves and their work to their medium. 20/20vision does not show photographic trends, instead, it strives for an inspiring juxtaposition of various artists, experts, concepts and techniques. With this broad presentation of contemporary approaches to photography, we want to support not only artistic talent but also a strategy for dealing with the flood of images: allowing ourselves to be guided by curiosity, sharing our enthusiasm, setting out on a search together and recommending what we find to others.
