PATRICK FAIGENBAUM


March 9 to June 2, 2013
Organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery
Co-curated by Director Kathleen S. Bartels and artist Jeff Wall

Since receiving international acclaim in the mid-1980s for his portraits of Italian aristocratic families, Patrick
Faigenbaum has situated his work within the heart of the pictorial tradition, emphasizing the expressive power
of photography and its position within art history. The first major presentation of the artist’s work in Canada,
Patrick Faigenbaum featured more than seventy-five photographs dating from the 1970s to the present.
Over the past 25 years, Faigenbaum has travelled throughout Europe creating portraits of people and places.
Initially trained as a painter, his large-scale photographic tableaux are infused with the artistic effects of light and
shadow, texture and other visual cues that reference the histories of painting, photography and cinema. His portraits
of individuals reveal the fleeting intimacy and ultimate distance between artist and sitter, while his photographs
of urban peripheries and rural landscapes allude to the socioeconomic changes taking place within Europe.
