A Handful of Dust



A Handful of Dust, an exhibition of images in dialogue curated by David Campany, is a speculative visual history of the 20th century. Campany has compiled works that trace a journey through the imagery of dust, from images based on aerial reconnaissance, wartime destruction and natural disasters to urban decay, domestic dirt and forensics. The exhibition features artworks by over 30 artists and photographers including Marcel Duchamp, Walker Evans, Mona Kuhn, Man Ray, Gerhard Richter, Sophie Ristelhueber, Aaron Siskind, and Shomei Tomatsu, alongside magazine spreads, press photos, postcards and film clips.

The exhibition will be on display at the Whitechapel Gallery until September 3, 2017.
