Event Description

Painting and photography have had a long relationship in American art. Since its invention, photography has influenced the way we see the world as much as how paintings have for centuries.  Shared Intelligence explores the dynamic ways visual artists have been inspired by and used the photograph.  The exhibition of more than 75 paintings and photographs focuses on the work of American painters for whom the photograph has been essential to the development of their work, such as Thomas Eakins, Frederic Remington, Charles Sheeler, Georgia O’Keeffe, Norman Rockwell, Andy Warhol, and contemporary artists, such as Robert Rauschenberg, Chuck Close, David Hockney, and Sherrie Levine. Major works by such ground-breaking photographers as Eadweard Muybridge, Alfred Stieglitz, Man Ray, Edward Weston, Walker Evans, and Margaret Bourke-White will also be included.

Organized by the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, N.M., and co-curated by Barbara Buhler Lynes and Jonathan Weinberg.
