William Wegman (b. 1943) is beloved by the public and held in critical esteem by the international art world for his smart, gently subversive humor that parodies all things familiar. “William WegmanÂ?Funney/Strange” is the first in-depth look at the artist in 15 years and examines his work in all media from the 1960s to the present. The exhibition will feature photographs, works on paper, paintings, conceptual work, videos, writings and rare archival materials. Several surprising new bodies of work will be seen in relation to classics, such as the photographs of his weimaraners.
