North & West
“Wall can be admired for having made photography into an art form that is worthy of being shown in any art gallery in Canada.”

Jeff Wall has lived in his hometown of Vancouver for all but four years of his life. Most of the images he has created are shot in and around that city, yet his art transcends these local subjects and addresses universal themes of history and memory. That explains why his work is celebrated around the world and has been the subject of countless international exhibitions from the Tate Modern to the MoMa to the Art Institute of Chicago. Jeff Wall: North & West is an elegant and insightful exploration of Wall’s work, featuring exquisite reproductions of twenty-one of his best-known works.
