Solo show of the famous LA-based Ame­ri­can artist whose pain­tings chal­lenge our per­cep­tion. Twelve images from the world-famous “MILK”-Series (2012), four works from the series “Street Art” (2012) and six works crea­ted in col­la­bo­ra­tion with pho­to­gra­pher Lacey (2014) will be on view, such as two hit­herto unpublis­hed pic­tures from two per­for­man­ces in 2010.

27 Sep­tem­ber 2015 – 21 Janu­ary 2016

The opening will take place at 7pm on 26 Sep­tem­ber 2015. As this is a pri­vate opening, it is reques­ted that atten­dees regis­ter for the event. The artist will be present.

On 29 Sep­tem­ber 2015 at 7pm, a live per­for­mance by Alexa Meade will take place on the pre­mi­ses of VIO­Life. This event is public and no regis­tra­tion is required.

The fol­lo­wing works are pre­sen­ted in the show:


It is with great plea­sure that the Gal­lery for Con­tem­porary Pho­to­gra­phy announ­ces its long-term col­la­bo­ra­tion with the Luxembourg-based com­pany VIO­Life. VIO­Life has made it pos­si­ble to exhi­bit artists rep­re­sen­ted by the Gal­lery for Con­tem­porary Pho­to­gra­phy in the newly reno­va­ted spaces of its company’s buil­ding.
This new exhi­bi­tion space in Luxem­bourg is set­ting stan­dards for qua­lity and opens with “LIVING COLORS” fea­turing the works of Los Angeles-based, Ame­ri­can artist Alexa Meade (born 1986). Since her inter­na­tio­nal bre­ak­th­rough in 2010, she has become a shoo­ting star on the inter­na­tio­nal art scene by exhi­bit­ing and per­for­ming in every inter­na­tio­nal metro­po­li­tan art cen­ter. Through her uni­que approach to pain­ting , she trans­forms people and objects into two­di­men­sio­nal images of them­sel­ves, crea­ting a pain­terly inter­pre­ta­tion of the objects directly on their sur­faces then recor­ding it in a pho­to­graph. The result ques­ti­ons our visual under­stan­ding, making us reconsider our own per­cep­tion and the gene­ral truth of images.
In addi­tion to twelve images from the world-famous “MILK-Series” (2012) and four works from the series “Street Art” (2012), six works crea­ted in col­la­bo­ra­tion with pho­to­gra­pher Lacey for Details Maga­zine (2014) will be on view for the first time. Two addi­tio­nal pic­tures which belong to the cate­gory of “never-before-seen” are from two famous per­for­man­ces in Washing­ton, DC that occur­red in 2010.
