Shutter

April 13, 2018
Carnelutti Studio Legale Associato hosted an art exhibition within Miart (International Fair of Modern and Contemporary Art). SHUTTER Curated by Carlo Prada. Will a selfie-addicted generation sweep us away? Between a self-referred click and another, traditional photography sounds so much like a déjà vu. Is it still possible to revolutionize photography? What is the photographer’s role? Will smartphone oust good old cameras? These and other questions are the core of the “Shutter” exhibition, where four artists, some of the most recent and significant voices of the current scenario, deal with the lens. Or almost.

Artists: Talia Chetrit - Buck Ellison - Sam Falls - Elad Lassry.
