James Casebere, Lisson Gallery, Milan

James Casebere’s first solo exhibition at Lisson Gallery in Milan presents recent bodies of work that take the natural world as their subject matter and iconic works of art as their starting points. The American artist’s staged photographs – shot in the studio from models that have been intricately assembled and cinematically lit – unveil a pastoral that is permeated with culture. For over 40 years, Casebere has explored the fictional possibilities of photography, testing his medium’s supposed truth-telling properties to document fabrications of reality.

Until 15 January 2016.
