Brandon Lattu is an artist whose work utilizes photography, sculpture, and video to investigate the constantly changing state of representation in order to push beyond the conventional empiricism that pictures of the world have traditionally invoked. His work particularly addresses the social structures emphasized and enforced by models of perspective and abstraction as well as spatial hierarchies in architecture and commerce.
Lattu will be the subject of a mid-career survey curated by Charlotte Cotton at the California Museum of Photography in 2021. An earlier survey exhibition of his work was held at the Kunstverein in Bielefeld, Germany in 2007, accompanied by Office Gray Case, an artist’s book reworking the traditional monograph.
Lattu has been included in numerous international group exhibitions at venues including the Institut D’Art Contemporain, Lyon; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (2013); Powerstation of Art, Shanghai (2012); Fondacion Jumex, Ecatapec (2012); Museum Ostwall, Dortmund (2011); Mak Center, Los Angeles (2010); the Stedelijk Museum Bureau, Amsterdam (2009); Vox Centre de L’image Contemporaine, Montreal (2008); the Essl Collection, Vienna (2007); Centre Pompidou, Paris (2006); and the Kunsthalle Basel (2000). His work is in the public collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Fondacion Jumex, Mexico, the Essl Collection, Vienna; the Torrance Art Museum, Torrance, CA; and the Centre Pompidou, Paris.
