For the tenth anniversary of Frieze Masters, Bruce Silverstein Gallery is pleased to present Series and Sequence, an exhibition featuring works spanning the nearly two hundred years of photographic history. Since the invention of the camera, photographers have worked in series in order to explore in depth a specific topic, theme, or stylistic approach. They have also used sequencing of images in reproduction and display to create a narrative, illustrating the subtle similarities and differences between subjects, and depicting the passage of time. Whether intended to be hung together, as in the case of a Bernd and Hilla Becher's photographic Typologies, or being shown side-by-side for the first time at Frieze Masters, such as a rare group of vintage Alfred Stieglitz's Equivalents, this special presentation brings together twenty artists from history who have explored Series and Sequence in their practice.
Included in this exhibition are works by Bernd and Hilla Becher, Karl Blossfeldt, Bill Brandt, Constantin Brancusi, Bill Cunningham, F. Holland Day, Todd Hido, Andre Kertesz, Barbara Morgan, Man Ray, Ed Ruscha, August Sander, Aaron Siskind, Frederick Sommer, Alfred Stieglitz, Karl Struss, John Stuart, J. Carroll Tobias, Ryan Weideman and Francesca Woodman.
