National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., West Concourse Gallery
10 December 2016 - 16 July 2017
Active as a photographer since the early 1990s, Rineke Dijkstra is known for her strikingly earnest, unsentimental depictions of young people in large-scale color prints. Shooting from a low vantage point with minimal background information, she endows her subjects with a monumental presence, creating portraits that are at once self-conscious but revealing, powerful but tender. This exhibition features four of Dijkstra’s portraits of adolescents, as well as a 1991 self-portrait that inspired much of her later work. It is timed to coincide with the installation of I See a Woman Crying (Weeping Woman), a three-channel video of British schoolchildren talking about Picasso’s painting Weeping Woman, on view in the East Building’s display of Collectors Committee gifts.

Hasselblad Award 2017
Hasselblad Foundation Center, Gothenburg
11 October 2017 - January 2018
A symposium will be held on October 10 in honor of Rineke Dijkstra, followed by the opening of an exhibition of her work at the Hasselblad Center, as well as the launch of the book Rineke Dijkstra – Hasselblad Award 2017.
The Foundation’s citation regarding the Hasselblad Award Winner 2017, Rineke Dijkstra:
»Rineke Dijkstra is one of the most significant contemporary artists working in photographic portraiture. Her large-scale photographs focus on the thema-tics of identity, typically capturing her subjects at moments of transition or vulnerability. Working in series, Rineke Dijkstra’s images recall the visual acuity of seventeenth-century Dutch portraiture, offering intimate portrayals of her sitters whilst also suggesting the situated aspects of their being. Rineke Dijkstra’s investigations in portraiture also include video. Her fixed-camera video studies yield images that appear to be moving photographs, revolutionizing our understanding of the fluid boundary between the still and moving image.«
