Art Review have published a fantastic piece on ‘Time’, the group show curated by Clare Kenny at Oslo10. The exhibition takes its title from John Szarkowski’s ‘The Photographer’s Eye’, with ‘time’ being one of five concerns emphasised as key to the understanding of photography. Art Review expands on this, writing that the works ‘play dare with the very questions of immediacy and authorship that delayed photography’s acceptance into the art canon’. Read it here.
