You Are Looking at Something That Never Occurred

In their third Online Exhibition on IC, London’s Zabludowicz Collection showcases their most recent presentation of the collection in the stand-out exhibition “You Are Looking at Something That Never Occurred”.

Bringing together fourteen international artists who all use photography as their main medium, “You Are Looking at Something That Never Occurred” features work that spans over a forty-year period, from 1977 to the present day, investigating how the artists have used the camera to blur boundaries beyond time, fact and fiction.

Taking the name from a conversation between Jeff Wall and Lucas Blalock where the two world-renowned photographers spoke of the need for art that is experimental as well as mysterious, “You Are Looking at Something That Never Occurred” features work exclusively from the Zabludowicz Collection, bridging the gap between artists of different generations and varied backgrounds. Showing works by Sara Cwynar, Elad Lassry, Jeff Wall, Natalie Czech, Richard Prince, Cindy Sherman, and Wolfgang Tillmans to name a few.
