Demand's photographs merge truthful documentation and unsettling artifice - two polarities raised by photography since its inception. For more than two decades, Demand has built intricate, life-size, three-dimensional models made wholly out of colored construction paper and cardboard that faithfully replicate specific architectural spaces and natural settings. He photographs the ephemeral structure and destroys it once the image is made.

Visual artists often work in series, weaving their way through threads of thought, method, and inspiration. With engaged study of the series that comprise an artist’s career, the depth and breadth of one’s knowledge and curiosity is enhanced. A Series Conversation takes as its mission the investigation and celebration of series within individual artists’ oeuvres. Each hour-long session probes a specific series within an artist’s solo exhibition on view at the Modern, inviting conversation, reflection, and connections.
