SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Saatchi Art today announced that, as part of its ongoing Guest Curator Series, actors Dylan McDermott and Jamie Lee Curtis have curated online photography exhibitions exclusively for Saatchi Art featuring works from the online gallery’s emerging artists worldwide.
Photography plays a large role in both actors’ lives, and through their online exhibitions, both present a distinct perspective on the medium and what appeals to them.
McDermott took up photography in 1986 and, ever since, has been traveling with his camera wherever his filming locations take him. He most recently presented “Street Life,” a pop-up exhibition at the New York Edition Hotel.
He recounted why he chose the works for his Saatchi Art exhibition, saying, “Each one of these pictures provoked a memory for me … some forgotten, some remembered. They all made me feel something. That’s all I ever want in a photograph.”
Jamie Lee Curtis has been recognized by Artnet News as one of the world’s 12 most influential photography collectors. A photographer herself, Curtis has judged numerous photography shows, including Paris Photo Los Angeles’ 2015 Introducing! Young California Photographer Award, and served as curator for the Frostig Collection’s 2013 photography exhibition.
Curtis said about her Saatchi Art exhibition: “It’s hard to put into words what pleases one’s eye. Mine is an eclectic one. A stillness yet a fluidity. I like darkness but also color.”
All of the works in Dylan McDermott’s and Jamie Lee Curtis’ exhibitions are currently for sale and can be viewed online at saatchiart.com/shows.
