Speaker - Rineke Dijkstra

 Rineke  Dijkstra  Thumbnail


Dutch-born Rineke Dijkstra is best known for her large-scale color photographs of young, typically adolescent subjects that recall seventeenth-century Dutch painting in their scale and visual acuity. Her photographs and videos capture what is both uniquely personal and universal about her subjects, the minimal contextual details encouraging the viewer to focus on the relationship between the photographer and the subject and between the viewer and the viewed. In 2012, Dijkstra was the subject of a mid-career retrospective presented at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Other recent exhibitions include a 2005-6 international tour of Rineke Dijkstra, Portraits; two solo shows at Marian Goodman Gallery, in Paris and New York (2010); and Rineke Dijkstra: I See a Woman Crying, on view at Tate Liverpool (2010). Earlier this year, the Museum für Moderne Kunst (MMK) Frankfurt presented the first comprehensive retrospective of the artist's filmic work. Dijkstra has been honored with the Citibank Photography Prize (1999); the Werner Mantz Award (1994); and the Kodak Award Netherlands (1987), among others.
