Tom Hunter's work is on display in Another Story: Photography from the Moderna Museet Collection in Stockholm, Sweden, through February 19.

Sharon Core's exhibition - 1606-1907 - opens at the gallery on Thursday, October 27th, and will feature new photographic works that explore the subject of floral still-life painting. Similar to the artist's earlier work, the series examines the relationship of representational painting to the medium of photography. But rather than focusing on a specific artist or time period, as in the previous Thiebaud and Early American works, the new series references a pictorial convention within painting as a whole. The exhibition will be on display until December 23.
Tom Hunter's project - Unheralded Stories - is on display at the Warwick Arts Centre in Coventry, England through December 10. The series continues the artist's exploration of the Hackney neighborhood of East London through the imagery of iconic paintings, referencing artists like Delacroix and Wyeth to describe the local myths, struggles and dreams of his local community.
