Writing the City (Nov. 17, 2016)
David Lurie’s exhibition of photographs, entitled “Writing The City”, opens at the Sulger-Buel Lovell gallery on November 17th at 6.30 pm, and runs through to December 16th, 2016.
Lurie captures, in characteristically exceptional detail, Cape Town’s surfaces, textures and artistic ‘interventions' and considers what these tell us about the inclusion and exclusion of different communities in the life and prosperity of the city.
“Lurie’s work is about the relationship between seeing and the moral imagination. His questions are about who speaks, how far their voices go in this city, about who bothers to look, and what they see when they do, about the omnipresent invisible.” (Professor Daniel Herwitz, University of Michigan Ann Arbor, from “David Lurie’s Photographic Ethics”, 2016).
