Footnotes on Candida Höfer at OMR Gallery, Mexico City

The exhibition Footnotes on Candida Höfer at OMR Gallery, Mexico City, presents artworks by Höfer, Jose Dávila, Jorge Méndez Blake, Theo Michael, Daniel Silver and Erwin Wurm. The group show takes Candida Höfer’s photogaphies and puts them in dialogue with the work of different contemporary artists and antiques to generate an experimantal curatorial discourse. Candida Höfer’s photos that have been chosen for this show focus on cultural spaces, such as libraries, museums, and inhabited theaters.

Candida Höfer was born in 1944 in Eberswalde, Germany. She studied film under Ole John and photography under Bernd Becher. Her work is known for technical perfection and a strictly conceptual approach. Candida Höfer has had major solo exhibitions, including Kunsthalle Basel, Portikus Frankfurt, Musée du Louvre, Paris, and Norton Museum of Art. She took part in Documenta 11 in Kassel in 2002, and represented Germany at the Venice Biennale in 2003 together with Martin Kippenberger. She lives and works in Cologne, Germany.
