How Soon Is Now features the work of leading contemporary photographers: Anne Collier, Liz Deschenes, Trisha Donnelly, Shannon Ebner, Roe Ethridge, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Fishli & Weiss, Annette Kelm, Darius Khondji, Elad Lassry, Leigh Ledare, Marlo Pascual, Gilad Ratman, Solmaz Shahbazi, Kazuo Shinohara and Taryn Simon. The photographers were selected by five of the world’s leading artists and curators: Tom Eccles, Liam Gillick, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Philippe Parreno and Beatrix Ruff. Some of the works included explore personal and intimate investigations by the artists, some filter and document everyday experiences or words, and some endow photographs with material presence as physical objects. A common element is the use of collage, video, film, installation or sculpture. Essays by Alex Klein, André Rottmann and Kaja Silverman consider the shifting role of the photographic medium.
