The photographs of Ghent-based Dirk Braeckman (b. 1958, Eeklo, Belgium) have a distinct stillness and quietude that counter the whirl of today’s visual landscape. Images of empty, unidentifiable interiors, architectural details, oceans, and partially obscured nude figures are just some examples of the artist’s subject matter. Braeckman’s deeply gray photographs are often abstracted, contributing to the mystery and intrigue of what his images convey while adding a sense of distance to the intimate interiors and views he depicts.

This exhibition gathers work by artists who address concepts of space and place. Drawn entirely from the Modern’s permanent collection, the exhibition includes paintings, photographs, drawings, and videos by artists from the United States, Europe, Asia, and Mexico. The categories of space and place are broadly conceived, encompassing nature, the city, environment, geography, and atmosphere, as well as landscapes of the imagination.
