Signs of a Struggle: Photography in the Wake of Postmodernism Exhibition at The V & A

11 August – 27 November 2011 admission free

“This display explores photographs that make reference to themselves, other media and texts, and demonstrates how such Postmodernist approaches to photography have persisted for over 30 years.  Spanning the mid-1970s to the present day, it shows work by some of the most influential artists associated with Postmodernism, such as Cindy Sherman and Richard Prince, alongside more recent work by Anne Hardy, David Shrigley, Clare Strand and others.”

So that is what postmodernism means,……. photographs that make reference to themselves, other media and texts

Clare Strand, from the series Signs of a Struggle, 2002. Gelatin silver print.
