On Tour: One of the largest & most comprehensive corporate collections of photography in the world

Conversations: Photography from the Bank of America Collection -  This exhibition is selected from the wide-ranging art holdings of Bank of America, one of the largest and most comprehensive corporate collections of photography in the world. The collection was significantly influenced by scholars Beaumont and Nancy Newhall, who in the late 1960s assembled a core group of photographs covering the entire history of the medium for The Exchange National Bank of Chicago, a legacy Bank of America institution.

 

In 2011, nearly 100 works from Bank of America’s photography collection will be on display at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. The exhibit, Conversations: Photography from the Bank of America Collection, will feature photography that spans the earliest development in the medium, dated 1851, to the present day with a collection of internationally renowned contemporary works. The exhibition will then travel to museums in Europe.


Details of the Boston exhibition is here, and the European tour will be posted in BPH when available.
