In Between PlacesBook - 2000
Rising star Uta Barth is one of the most exciting and innovative artist/photographers in the world today -- her enigmatic and beguiling images have again and again transfixed art audiences from London to Los Angeles Barth's work draws its strength from its blurring of the familiar and strange, bringing the viewer to a liminal space between the two. It is in this place that Barth begins her investigation into the very nature of perception, where the epistemological importance of such formal qualities as lighting and composition becomes astoundingly evident Uta Barth. In Between Places is the first comprehensive book on Barth's oeuvre, presenting a carefully selected survey of her works, and as such is a must-have for viewers, collectors and students attracted to contemporary art and photography The poetic resonance, radical intelligence and sheer beauty of Barth's pictures are given perfect illustration in this book, designed with the artist herself Uta Barth's work is represented in numerous public and private collections worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York; the Tate Gallery, London; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. She has had solo exhibitions in Los Angeles, New York, London, San Francisco, and Stockholm.
