WUNDERCAMERA: SAVANNAH, Jepson Centre for the Arts, Telfair Museums, Savannah, Georgia, 17 February - 14 May 2017, curated by Klaus Wehner/Museum Clausum, featuring works by:

Mark Dion, Andy Freeberg, Andrew Grassie, Karl Grimes, Vid Ingelevics, Valery Katsuba, Louise Lawler, Stuart Leech/Dulwich Picture Gallery, Museum Clausum, Matthew Pillsbury, Richard Ross and Hiroshi Sugimoto.

The third in the series, Wundercamera Savannah brings together nearly 80 works by twelve international artists. In preparation to the exhibition, Wehner was commissioned by Telfair Museums to take photographs of all three sites, the Telfair Academy, the Jepson Center for the Arts, and the Owens-Thomas House. The resulting images are interspersed in the installation. (click here to see the images) The walls have been painted to match the shade of grey the museum uses in the Telfair Academy. The exhibition finishes with a multi-layered 'ghost' image of previous Wundercamera exhibitions.
