Gregory Crewdson Lecture

Offering a surreal view of middle America, Gregory Crewdson’s photographs are dramatically stylized scenes that some have compared to the melancholic paintings of Edward Hopper and the gothic films of David Lynch.

Crewdson is currently in Australia for the launch of a biographical feature film and for the exhibition ‘Gregory Crewdson: In a Lonely Place’ at the Centre for Contemporary Photography – part of the Melbourne Festival – before it tours to Brisbane’s Institute of Modern Art (IMA) in 2013.

As a teaser for Brisbane locals, Crewdson will present a lecture at the Gallery of Modern Art this weekend about his work and practice. His lecture will be followed by the Australian première of Ben Shapiro’s feature film Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters.

Artist Profile met with Crewdson on a prior visit to Australia, a video of the interview was published on this website.

Crewdson’s work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. He is represented by Gagosian Gallery, New York, and White Cube, London.

    Can’t believe I have missed this! Is this moving on to any other galleries? I love Hopper and Lynch and would love to have a nosey at Crewdson’s collection. Can a kind person let me know please?

    Hello Owen,
    I am writing to you from Czech Republic 🙂 I am working on a presentation on Gregory Crewdson for my course, as I admire his work a lot. I wonder if you have a video from his talk/lecture that he gave at the Gallery of Modern Art. I would love to see it.
    Thank you a lot and regards from the other side of the planet 🙂

      Dear Alexandra – I don’t know if there was any video recording of Crewdon’s lecture at GoMA but I had the pleasure of meeting Crewdson when he was in Australia a couple of years ago. I conducted an interview with him that discussed his practice, which we published here on our website. This may be helpful for your report.
