‘REMEMBERED LIGHT’ by Sally Mann at Gagosian Athens

Where: Gagosian Gallery Athens
When: On now – 20 January 2018
Why Go: See the work of one of America’s best photographers

Gagosian is pleased to present “Remembered Light,” Sally Mann’s first exhibition in Athens. Mann is known for her images of intimate and familiar subjects rendered both sublime and disquieting: children, landscape, family, and mortality. In previous projects, she explored relationships between parent and child, husband and wife, brother and sister, nature and history. In this exhibition of colour and black-and-white photographs, taken between 1999 and 2012, she records in fleeting impressions the studio of the late Cy Twombly, her close friend and mentor. Following presentations at Gagosian New York, Paris, and Rome, this exhibition marks Mann’s first dedicated exhibition in Greece.

“There is a sense of immutable, eternal life. And in these new works there is a sense about Cy’s own continuum—the ongoing quality of his great legacy and his art—it’s not a memorialization, it’s a living thing.” —Sally Mann

A fully illustrated catalogue with an essay by Simon Schama, and a conversation between Sally Mann and Edmund de Waal, published by Abrams, accompanies these works.


Sally Mann was born in 1951 in Lexington, Virginia, where she continues to live and work. A Guggenheim fellow, and a three-time recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts fellowship, Mann was named “America’s Best Photographer” by Time magazine in 2001.
