John Stezaker: biography, selected museum exhibitions, public collections and shows at kaufmann repetto



John Stezaker was born in Worchester, in 1949. He lives and works in London.

A cult figure in post-war British art, through a range of techniques made up of sparse and rigorous actions, Stezaker re-examines the role of the photographic image in contemporary culture, challenging its unreliability as a document of reality or a stronghold of memory, investigating the drift of its meanings. In his studio in London, the archive of images collected and catalogued obsessively by the artist are implemented as genuine readymades, transformed through juxtaposition, re-framing, and other editing tools to form small to medium-sized collages, seductive yet on the verge of the disconcerting.


selected museum exhibitions

John Stezaker solo exhibitions include John Stezaker: Portrait, National Portrait Gallery, London (2019), John Stezaker: Lost World at the City Gallery of Wellington, New Zealand (2017); the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Israel (2013); and the Whitechapel Gallery, London (2011), which then travelled to MUDAM in Luxembourg, also in 2011. His work has been exhibited in many group exhibitions internationally: the 19th Biennale of Sydney, Australia (2014); the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York (2008); the Tate Triennial, London (2006); and the 40th Venice Biennale in 1982. Stezaker’s work is held in museum and public collections around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Tate Modern, London; and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
