Few artists have shaped the scope of contemporary art and influenced a younger generation more than Wolfgang Tillmans. Since the early 1990s, his works have epitomized a new kind of subjectivity in photography, pairing intimacy and playfulness with social critique and the persistent questioning of existing values and hierarchies. Through his seamless integration of genres, subjects, techniques, and exhibition strategies, he has expanded conventional ways of approaching the medium and his practice continues to address the fundamental question of what it means to create pictures in an increasingly image-saturated world.

On September 5, Tillmans will be in conversation with Paul Holdengräber, Director of Public Programming at The New York Public Library, about art and political action. The public talk, which supports the NYPL and inaugurates the LIVE from the NYPL fall season, precedes How likely is it that only I am right in this matter?, an exhibition of Tillmans’s new and recent work that opens on September 13 at David Zwirner’s West 19th Street gallery.

General admission and student tickets available; all proceeds go toward supporting programming at The New York Public Library.
