Hasted Kraeutler is pleased to announce a major retrospective of Martin Schoeller's photographs, organized to coincide with the release of Portraits (teNeues, 2014), a monumental monograph spanning 15 years of his illustrious career, beginning November 13, 2014 and running through January 3, 2015.
Martin Schoeller with friends
Featuring a written introduction by Jeff Koons, the latest monograph is a cause for celebration and a true milestone moment for the artist. The exhibition includes a range of images of varying scale that Schoeller made over the past decade and a half, all of which confirm his position as a maestro of his craft. Viewed cumulatively in both black-and-white and color, the photographs on view prove that he has more than earned his reputation as today’s preeminent portraitist, consistently capturing characters we think we know in ways we couldn’t predict.
