Past Exhibition

Gottfried // Shabazz // Trossbach // Zownir – Cologne

28 February - 14 April 2018, Cologne

On February 24, 2018, the Galerie Bene Taschen will open its first group exhibition of the year presenting the work of New York photographers, Arlene Gottfried and Jamel Shabazz, German photographer, Miron Zownir, and the German painter Charlotte Trossbach, whose work is being exhibited and represented for the first time by the gallery.

The selection of photographs by Gottfried, Shabazz and Zownir, focus on the theme of New York in the 1980s. Through black and white, as well as colored photographs, the three photographers provide viewers with insights to the different milieus of the city. Each with their own perspectives on the Big Apple, they document the fast-paced energy of the city, ist inhabitants and everyday situations. Accompanying these photographic works are the paintings of Charlotte Trossbach, whose work is characterized by a photorealistic style. Transparency and transcience is the main focus in Charlotte Trossbach’s paintings, as she transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary with elegant and irreplicable snapshots of consumerism and everyday objects.
