East Wing showcases a unique group of artists who present investigative narratives from around the world for “Foundations, Winter 2024” the online art fair on Artsy.

Together, these artists challenge the foundations of image-making through distinctive visual narratives, that explore unseen communities and also examine iconic and oversaturated images etched in our collective consciousness. Featured artists include Wesaam Al-Badry, Rehab Eldalil, Federico Estol, Christopher Iduma, Corinne Vionnet, and Cortis & Sonderegger.

For this edition of “Foundations,” East Wing celebrates new artists on our roster: Wesaam Al-Badry (IQ / USA), Rehab Eldalil (EG), Federico Estol (UY) and Christopher Iduma (NG). Their narratives provide insight into vibrant communities that are often underrepresented worldwide, spanning the energy and vibrancy of communities across the Sinai Desert, Bolivia, Nigeria and the United States.

Additionally, we feature works by Franco-Swiss artist Corinne Vionnet, who considers the relationship between mass tourism and digital culture, through her series “Photo Opportunities” and “Paris, Paris, Paris.” Cortis & Sonderegger’s series, “Icons,” daringly re-envisions iconic photographic images, challenging traditional notions of what constitutes a “document.” East Wing is thrilled to present this exciting lineup of contemporary artists working both in the studio and out in the field, weaving narratives that invite viewers to consider and question our vision of the world in 2024!
