Event Description

The sweeping exhibition, RECONSIDERING THE PHOTOGRAPHIC MASTERPIECE, curated by Michele Penhall, will present approximately 100 works chosen from the museum’s permanent collection—some on view for the first time—that encompasses the history of photography from 1843 to 2011. The exhibition centers upon the idea of an artist's signature or iconic image from an evolving and changed, historical perspective. Works from the 19th century to the present day by William Henry Fox Talbot, Julia Margaret Cameron, Edward Weston, August Sander, Diane Arbus, Gary Winnogrand, Hilla and Bernd Becher, Flor Garduño, and Vik Muniz with recent gifts and acquisitions of works by Alfred Stieglitz, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Jayne Hinds Bidaut, John Coplans, Tamas Deszo, Danny Lyon, Alec Soth, and Martin Parr will be included in this important exhibition.
