Where Art Thou?
Works by American photographer Andy Freeberg
Art Museum Gösta 26 March — 4 September 2022
Andy Freeberg (b. 1958) is an American photographer who lives and works in San Francisco. He began his career as a photojournalist specialising particularly in portraits and he worked for many major magazines like Time, Fortune, Rolling Stone, Village Voice and Der Spiegel. Since 2007, however, he has been fully focused on his career as a visual artist.
Freeberg is working on an extensive series of works that study a diverse range of different areas of life and phenomena. The exhibition Where Art Thou? at Serlachius Museums is a retrospective of a series of works surveying the art world, which he has produced over the past fifteen years.
In the works of the exhibition, Freeberg explores, for example, New York art gallery reception desks, Russian museum guards, art fairs and art consultants responsible for interior design in the homes of California’s nouveau riche. The exhibition is curated by Pauli Sivonen.
