American, born in 1947

Louise Lawler's conceptual photography explores how the work of art is viewed throughout its journey, from the studio to the institution that exhibits it. Opening the doors of museums, private collections and auction houses, she calls into question the impact of the exhibition context on the perception of works by taking photos of them on site.

By redefining the relationship between external factors - the exhibition venue, the individuality of each viewer - and the discourse of the work, Lawler probes the issue of art’s autonomy more broadly. Through a continuously recontextualising approach, she readily revisits her own creations by adapting them on various formats.

Known since the 1980s for her photographs, Lawler has stood out as a major figure in appropriationism alongside Sherrie Levine and Cindy Sherman. Her works in the Pinault Collection were first exhibited at the "Sequence 1" show in 2007 at the Palazzo Grassi.
