This exhibition of the influential Canadian artist Jeff Wall shows his use of photography to study the process of settlement on landscapes, or cityscapes, and to examine the meaning of landscape. A successful picture is a source of pleasure, and I believe that it is the pleasure experienced in art that makes possible any critical reflection about its subject matter or its form.
The exhibition of Jeff Wall Landscapes was set in the context of Manchester Art Gallerys collection of 18th century secular Dutch landscapes and Norwich Castle collection of the Norwich Schools early 19th century depiction of disappearing rural communities at the time of industrialisation.
