Temporary Closure NYC
The Walther Collection Project Space

3/14/2020 — 9/7/2020


In light of the increasing concerns and rapidly changing developments related to Covid-19, The Walther Collection closes its doors to the public until further notice – our priority being the safety of our visitors and staff worldwide.

The Walther Collection will itself remain active, shifting and increasing its presence online and in communications via its social media channels. We look forward to sharing in-depth excerpts from our past and future exhibitions and publications, highlighting works from the Collection and new areas of research, and inviting interested visitors and scholars alike to actively engage with us in these forums or by email.

We remain at work on our exciting 2020 program, including the release of two significant books on Samuel Fosso, together with a related exhibition in New York, and a retrospective exhibition on Santu Mofokeng in Neu-Ulm, Germany. In addition, we look forward to two more publications: Imagining Everyday Life: Engagements with Vernacular Photography, on our collection of vernacular photography, with contributions by 20 renowned scholars. We will also launch a first retrospective book project on the career of the South African artist Jo Ractliffe, whose work is an important part of our collection.

We will continue to support the work of photographic artists and think critically about the histories of the medium.
