Villa e Collezione Panza

Piazza Litta, 1, 21100 Varese VA, Italy

16 January - 29 March 2015


Villa e Collezione Panza in Varese, Italy, will mount an exhibition of photographs by Wim Wenders from              16th January – 29th March 2015. Under the title and theme of ‘America’, the exhibition brings together 34 photographs which were taken in America between 1978 – 2003. These range from small-scale silver gelatin works on Baryt paper, to mid-format and large-scale, panoramic colour C-Type photographs. With images from New York, Arizona, Montana, California, New Mexico, Texas and Colorado, the selection conveys Wenders’ nomadic travels around the country.

Included in the hang are two works that have never previously been exhibited, Old Tree Near Silver City, New Mexico and The City of Rocks, New Mexico (both 1983), as well as the artist’s monumental engagement with the Ground Zero site, where he captured the still-smoking masses of metal and debris on 8th November 2001. Iconic images such as Street Corner in Butte (2003) highlight Wim Wenders’ ability to capture the colour, essence and the implicit narratives of any space, place or landscape.
