Triennial of Photography Hamburg features Encirculation by Lyle Ashton Harris

Presented at Hamburg’s Deichtorhallen, one of the largest art exhibition spaces in Europe, Encirculation is among a diverse selection of photography-based works by over two dozen artists assembled by the curators swho were guided by the conceptual premise that “in our accelerated era of circulation and instrumentation, images not only act as records of events and imprints of experience but also fundamentally shape acts of seeing and being seen. Approaching photographs as contextual frames for narrative invention, the exhibition critically considers how knowledge has been sought through the photographic apparatus over the course of its history and reimagined by artists and photographers through conceptual and poetic approaches to the medium.”
