Frédéric Brenner: An Archeology of Fear and Desire

Main Gallery

May 7 – July 3, 2015

Press Release

An exhibition of recent photographs of Israel and the West Bank by Frédéric Brenner will be on view at Howard Greenberg Gallery from May 7 – July 3, 2015.  An Archeology of Fear and Desire is part of an unprecedented photographic project by Brenner, which explores the complexity of Israel and the West Bank as place and metaphor. A book of the same name, published by MACK in the UK, last year accompanies the exhibition. An Archeology of Fear and Desire is Brenner’s contribution to This Place, an epic photographic project he conceived of at his home in Paris in 2005. He imagined inviting artists from around the world to come to Israel “neither to praise nor condemn but to question and reveal.”
