Photography Exhibits, Fall 2009

What follows is a listing of all major museum exhibits across America over the next several months that have photography as their primary focus. Because the listing is exceptionally long, I am placing it behind a cut. The museums are in alphabetical order by state, then city, then the museum name.

Please let me know if you are aware of an exhibit I have missed. The museums surveyed for this list are those listed at the Artcyclopedia resource.

A listing of the American museums devoted to the photographic arts will be given in a separate post later this afternoon.

June Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art (Auburn, Alabama)

Elvis at 21, New York to Memphis: Photographs by Alfred Wertheimer – October 10, 2009 – January 9, 2010

With almost cinematic luminosity, Wertheimer’s rich black-and-white photographs capture the future legend in rehearsal and performance, reading fan mail, visiting with a high school sweetheart, sitting alone in a diner, and riding the rails on a trip back home. The poignant images portray an innocent period in Presley’s life soon to vanish in the wake of his superstardom, and constitute an important visual document of post-World War II America.

Montgomery Museum of Fine Art (Montgomery, Alabama)

Photographs by Yousuf Karsh (1908-2002) – Through January 31, 2010

This is a rotating exhibition in the museum’s Williamson Gallery and Orientation Lobby. The current exhibits are Stars of the Silver Screen (through November 29) and Soldiers, Statesmen, and Politicians (December 5 through January 31).

Phoenix Art Museum (Phoenix, Arizona)

Face to Face: 150 Years of Photographic Portraiture – Through January 10, 2010

Face to Face: 150 Years of Photographic Portraiture explores the photographic portrait – the stories portraits can tell, the ways photographers convey the essence of their subjects and the impact of the relationship between photographer and subject.

J. Paul Getty Museum (Los Angeles, California)

In Focus: Making a Scene – Through October 18, 2009

Photography, although commonly associated with truthfulness, has been used to produce fiction since its introduction in 1839. The acceptance of staging, and the degree of its application, has varied greatly depending on the genre and the historical moment, but it has persisted as an artistic approach. The photographs in this exhibition, drawn exclusively from the J. Paul Getty Museum’s collection, make no pretense about presenting the world as it exists; instead, they are the productions of directors and actors who rely on stagecraft and occasional darkroom trickery to tell stories.

MOCA Grand Avenue (Los Angeles, California)

Robert Frank’s “The Americans” – Through October 19, 2009

From the Permanent Collection: Describing the emotional scope of Frank’s portfolio, Kerouac wrote: “After seeing these pictures you end up finally not knowing whether a jukebox is sadder than a coffin.” Frank’s photographs, which have become landmarks in the history of photography, were created with a hand-held Leica camera, often with a wide-angle lens, resulting in compositions that appear unplanned, spontaneous, and are ultimately revealing. In this 50th anniversary year of its publication, MOCA presents a rare showing of the complete set of photographs comprisingThe Americans, in the order carefully devised by Frank for the book.

Palm Springs Art Museum (Palm Springs, California)

Modern Moments: Recent Gifts in American Photography – Through November 8, 2009

The Palm Springs Art Museum recently received three major photography gifts that have brought national attention to our growing collection. Some of the most stunning works from these gifts have been organized into this exhibition, which features compelling works from post-World War II American photography. The three collectors who have donated these significant photographs are Patricia and Patrick Kennedy, Jeanne and Dan Fauci, and Pamela and Joe Bonino.

Asian Art Museum (San Francisco, California)

Photographic Memories – Through January 17, 2010

The second installation of this display highlights a new group of historical photographs from the Asian Art Museum’s collection. The images reflect varied perspectives on the lives people led in Asia, and record travels people took there at the end of the nineteenth century. These views are controlled by the lens of Western and local photographers and are informed by their personal visions, official missions, and commercial motivations. The subjects range from formal portraits of princes to picturesque landscapes and architecture. The majority of the 41 works on view document life in colonial India. The remaining works feature China, Japan and Korea as their subjects. Most of the photographs date from 1850 to 1910. Together, they succeed in being more than personal memories. The photographs offer a glimpse into the ambivalent relationships between the colonizers and colonized (in the case of India), touch on issues such as perceptions of the ‘other’, and comment on the political and social realities wrought by modernity and a changing world at the turn of the century.

de Young (San Francisco, California)

Toward Abstraction: Photographs and Photograms – Through November 15, 2009

Just as abstraction has played a vital role in the history of modernist painting and sculpture, so too has it found expression in works by leading photographers of the 20th and 21st centuries. Toward Abstraction features the work of Edward Weston, Arthur Siegel, Harry Callahan, Lee Friedlander, Imogen Cunningham, and Robert Mapplethorpe

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (San Francisco, California)

Richard Avedon: Photographs 1946-2004 – Through November 29, 2009

Whether photographing politicians, artists, writers, fashion models, or movie stars, Richard Avedon revolutionized the genre of portraiture. He rejected conventional stiff-and-staid poses and instead captured both motion and emotion in the faces of his subjects, often encapsulating their intrigue in a single charged moment.

The Provoke Era: Postwar Japanese Photography – Through December 20, 2009

The tumultuous period following defeat in World War II proved fertile ground for a generation of Japanese photographers who responded to societal upheaval by creating a new visual language dubbed “Are, Bure, Boke” — rough, blurred, and out of focus. After the war, Japan experienced a complete overhaul of its national identity, catapulting itself from empire to democracy. Named for the magazine Provoke, which sought to break the rules of traditional photography, this exhibition traces how Japanese photographers responded to their country’s shifting social and political atmosphere.

Photography Now: China, Japan, Korea – Through December 20, 2009

Drawn entirely from SFMOMA’s collection, Photography Now showcases pictures by 30 contemporary artists working in China, Japan, and Korea.

Reynolds Gallery (Santa Barbara, California)

Zwelethu Mthethwa: Images of Africa – Through October 31, 2009

Work by South African photographer Zwelethu Mthethwa gives a glimpse into the lives of adults and children living in poverty in contemporary Mozambique.

Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (Boulder, Colorado)

Andrea Modica, Fountain – Through January 17, 2010

Andrea Modica’s work is neither defined as documentary photography or portraiture. Her work lies somewhere in-between those two modes of image making. Over ten years Modica has been witness to the Baker’s family life, specifically the four children who are growing up and learning the family slaughterhouse business. The artist uses a large format camera, which makes it virtually impossible to capture candid moments that are typical in most documentary works. Skillfully, Modica relaxes, she expects to spend significant time in the moments before the shutter snaps.

National Portrait Gallery (Washington, DC)

Faces of the Frontier: Photographic Portraits from the American West, 1845-1924 – Through January 24, 2010

The American West was dramatically reconstituted during the 80 years between the Mexican War and the passage of the Indian Citizenship Act in 1924. This exhibition tells the story of these changes through 100 portrait photographs of the defining men and women of this period. It chronicles such events as the completion of the transcontinental railroad, on-going conflicts between Native Americans and non-natives, the emergence of the national parks movement and the admittance of 19 new states west of the Mississippi.

Phillips Collection (Washington, DC)

Man Ray, African Art, and the Modernist Lens – Through January 10, 2010

Man Ray translated the 20th-century modernist taste for African art into photographs that reached a popular audience. About 60 of his photographs, many never before exhibited, along with more than 40 photographs by his contemporaries, including Cecil Beaton, Walker Evans, and Alfred Stieglitz, will appear side-by-side with 20 of the African objects featured in the images. The exhibition explores the pivotal role of these photographs in shaping the perception of non-Western objects as fine art.

Boca Raton Museum of Art (Boca Raton, Florida)

Clyde Butcher: Wilderness Visions and Stephen Althouse: Tools and Shrouds – Through November 8, 2009

Clyde Butcher’s compelling black and white photographs chronicle some of America’s most beautiful and complex ecosystems. For more than thirty years, self-taught photographer Butcher (American, born in Kansas City, Missouri in 1944- ) has been preserving the untouched landscape on film, and for twenty of those years he has concentrated on Florida. The exquisite beauty of his work draws the viewer into a relationship with nature. His images are captured with 8 x 10 inch, 11 x 14 inch, and 16 x 20 inch view cameras. The large format allows him to express in elaborate detail, the textures that distinguish the beauty of the landscape. This exhibition presents work from the last twenty-five years ranging from the forests of the Pacific Northwest, to the rocky country of Utah and Colorado, to the woodlands of the Chesapeake region and the wetlands of Florida.

Tools and Shrouds debuts a series of 27 large format black and white photographs by Stephen Althouse completed during the last decade. Althouse transforms familiar objects into symbols of human experience and spiritual striving. Born in Washington, DC in 1948, Althouse’s childhood in rural Bucks County, Pennsylvania has been an influence on his art. The product of a Quaker education, Althouse received his MFA in sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, and studied at Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia. The sculptural tradition of making and manipulating subject matter is carried over into his photography, and is further explored in these enigmatic and powerful images.

Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art (Gainesville, Florida)

Highlights from the Photography Collection: Portfolios – Through February 28, 2010

The organizational concepts of the portfolios featured here are typically diverse. Monographic portfolios by individual artists such as Jerry Uelsmann and Ken Josephson provide special insights into the artists’ work when seen together rather than as isolated examples. Additionally the portfolio format encourages artists to create concentrated thematic groupings, such as Eliot Porter’s China portfolio or Mark Klett’s Amid Generations series of photographs in the environs of Tallahassee.

Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville (Jacksonville, Florida)

Through the Lens: Contemporary Photography from the Permanent Collection – Through January 3, 2010

Polk Museum of Art (Lakeland, Florida)

The Surreal Photography of Jerry Uelsmann – Through January 17, 2010

Jerry Uelsmann is arguably the most important photographer working today. Fifty years ago he began creating beautiful montages by hand in the darkroom. When he began combining multiple negatives onto a single print, his work was considered an intense challenge to the world of photographic art. Today, he is understood to be a true visionary and pioneer, paving the way for much of the most daring contemporary photography. Yet the power and beauty of his work is still stunning even in this age of digital cameras, printers and software.

Photography from the Permanent Collection – Through January 17, 2010

Photography has quickly become one of the strongest collecting areas for Polk Museum of Art. Over the last ten years, seventy outstanding photographs or photogravures have been added to what was already a solid collection. This exhibition includes work by artists of international stature such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Chuck Close, Herman Leonard, and Barbara Morgan, as well as many of the best photographers in Florida and throughout the South such as Clyde Butcher, Birney Imes, Joshua Mann Pailet, and Anna Tomczak.

Museum of Fine Arts (St. Petersburg, Florida)

Legends in Photography: Major Works from the Museum’s Collection – Through January 31, 2010

This exhibition of more than sixty images gives insight into the depth and breadth of the MFA’s noted photography holdings. The photographs range from the early days of print photography, as in a 19th century salt print by Edouard Baldus, and classic western landscapes by William Henry Jackson and Carleton Watkins, to later 20th century color photographs by William Christenberry and Stephen Shore.

Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art (Tarpon Springs, Florida)

Arnold Newman: One World/One People and Angelo Mantas: Epitaph/Roadside Memorials in America – Through November 8, 2009

An exhibition of 33 photographs taken by artist Angelo Mantas to document roadside memorials found along highways from Florida to Washington, California to New Hampshire.

Vero Beach Museum of Art (Vero Beach, Florida)

Sanctuary: Anna Tomczak Photography – Through December 27, 2009

Anna Tomczak photographs still life assemblages created with flowers from her garden, mementos from family and friends, and flea market treasures. Tomczak reuses and reinvents her objects, making them part of her daily life as well as her art. Catholicism, mysticism and psychic energy are also elements that inform her work. She uses the Polaroid large-format transfer process to lend a tactile quality to the photographic imagery.

Cornell Fine Arts Museum (Winter Park, Florida)

Andy Warhol Personalities – Through January 3, 2010

Andy Warhol Personalities features Polaroid photographs in the Permanent Collection taken by Warhol during the 1980’s of socialites, celebrities, and patrons, including Carolina Herrera, Pia Miller, and Ric Ocasek. For Warhol, these photos served as a kind of “sketchbook,” a quick way to record source material for future use. One of the most influential artists of the 20th century, Andy Warhol (1928-1987) figured prominently in the Pop Art movement of the 1960s, which saw a shift away from traditional distinctions between fine art and popular culture. His renown as a painter, printmaker, and filmmaker, however, was often overshadowed by his “celebrity lifestyle.” The Polaroids on view document his diverse social circle as well as his creative process.

Andre Kertesz: On Reading – Through January 3, 2010

Andre Kertesz: On Reading features more than 100 photographs by the legendary Hungarian photographer André Kertész, considered one on the most influential art photographers of all time. In this series of photographs, made over a fifty-year period in Hungary, France, and the United States, Kertész examines the power of reading as a universal pleasure and illustrates the poetry and choreography of life in public and private moments.

High Museum of Art (Atlanta, Georgia)

Alec Soth: Black Line of Woods – Through January 3, 2010

In the tradition of photographers like Walker Evans, William Eggleston and Stephen Shore, Minneapolis-based photographer Alec Soth seeks to expose and elevate ordinary aspects of American life. His poetic images capture the harsh beauty of disenfranchised people and places, underscoring the realities of living in such a vast and varied country.

Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia (Atlanta, Georgia)

Photographs from MOCA Georgia’s Permanent Collection – October 10, 2009 – December 31, 2009

Morris Museum of Art (Augusta, Georgia)

William Christenberry: Photographs, 1961-2005 – Through November 8, 2009

Widely recognized as a pioneer in the field of color photography, William Christenberry has used this expressive medium to explore the American South for forty years. While pursuing this artistic quest he has drawn inspiration from Walker Evans, and influenced a generation of emerging photographers. William Christenberry: Photographs, 1961—2005 surveys his poetic documentation of southern vernacular architecture, signage, and landscape using a wide range of cameras, from his earliest Brownie photographs of the early 1960s to his later work with a large-format camera. Combining never-before-seen photographs, both old and new, with images that are now iconic, this exhibition comprises fifty vintage photographic works and one sculpture. Together, they convey the breadth of his singular photographic vision. Discuss the artistic objectives of his long-term interpretation of the Southern landscape with Michelle Norris of National Public Radio, Christenberry explained: “What I really feel very strongly about, and I hope reflects in all aspects of my work, is the human touch, the humanness of things, the positive and sometimes the negative and sometimes the sad.”

Booth Western Art Museum (Cartersville, Georgia)

Lasting Light: 125 Years of Grand Canyon Photography – Through October 25, 2009

Created by the Grand Canyon Association and organized for travel by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Services (SITES), Lasting Light: 125 Years of Grand Canyon Photography showcases 60 photographs covering the photographic history of the Grand Canyon.

The second edition of the Now and Then series juxtaposes historic and contemporary images addressing a variety of enduring aspects of everyday life in the South. Including images that speak to Southerners’ longstanding connections with the land and its history, religion and the celebration of the eccentric, the exhibition evokes a unique sense of place as projected through the lens of cameras both past and present.

Savannah College of Art and Design Museum of Art (Savannah, Georgia)

The Master Eye: Photography from the Rhoades Collection – Through January 8, 2010

Southern Illinois University Museum (Carbondale, Illinois)

Masters of Photography from the Museum’s Collection – Through May 31, 2010

The “Masters of Photography” exhibit, curated by Lori Huffman, Curator of Collections at the Museum, features twenty-five photographers and thirty images. They illustrate the range of photographic styles and subjects from the social realism of Jacob Riis and Dorothea Lange to a celebrity photograph of Gloria Swanson by Edward Steichen, from urban documentation by Berenice Abbott, Walker Evans and Helen Levitt to imaginative landscapes by Henri Cartier-Bresson and W. Eugene Smith. The earliest photographer represented is Jacob Riis (1849-1914); the latest include Bruce Davidson (b.1933), Jerry Uelsmann (b. 1934), and George Krause (b. 1937).

Krannert Art Museum (Champaign, Illinois)

Gestures in Space and Light – Through January 3, 2010

The exhibition takes its cue from the creative tension that inheres in the photographic process—though a medium that holds time in place, its images, nevertheless, elude capture—motions continue, light brightens or fades, and memories are born. As studies in light, form and pattern, the photographs on display blur the boundaries between the natural and built environments, between representation and abstraction, and between the concrete and the conceptual. In so doing, they extend beyond the gallery, and open us up to new ways of seeing.

Effacement: Huang Yan’s China in the 21st Century – Through July 3, 2010

In a photographic series, scenes from classical Chinese landscapes were digitally manipulated and reproduced on four whitened faces. The subject, merged with conventional landscape, is fugitive, his identity lost. Huang’s engagement with commercialized culture may be identified with an aspect of Euro-American modernist art. Nonetheless, Huang’s photographs and porcelains are bound up with local and specific meanings, which uncover the mutual implication of Asian modernity and orientalist fantasies.

Art Institute of Chicago (Chicago, Illinois)

Playing with Pictures: The Art of Victorian Photocollage – October 10, 2009 – January 3, 2010

This exhibition is the first to comprehensively examine the little-known phenomenon of Victorian photocollage, presenting work that has rarely—and in many cases never—before been displayed or reproduced.

Snite Museum of Art (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Darkness and Light: Death and Beauty in Photography – November 1, 2009 – December 21, 2009

Since the medium’s invention in 1839, photographers have focused their cameras on all aspects of our world. Certain genres have become very popular, such as portraits, landscapes, urban views, the human figure, contemporary society, violence, and major events both public and private. Running through all these images are underlying themes, including those of both death and beauty. This exhibit, selected from the Museum’s permanent collection of photographs, will examine various aspects of these two ideas in thought-provoking images from around the world, ranging from 1844 to the present.

Dubuque Museum of Art (Dubuque, Iowa)

John Vachon and the Great Depression in Dubuque – Through November 8, 2009

Working as a photography file clerk for the Farm Security Administration in 1936, Minnesotan Vachon came under the spell of some of the finest photographers in the country who were hired by the government during the Great Depression years to document the lives of rural Americans. As part of his assignments, Vachon came to Dubuque in April 1940. […] The hallmark of Vachon’s style of photography is the portrayal of real people and places encountered on the street, unembellished by air brushing, staging, or other beautifying devices.

Spencer Museum of Art (Lawrence, Kansas)

Big Shots: Andy Warhol, Celebrity Culture, and the 1980s – Through January 24, 2010

The Art of Caring: A Look at Life Through Photography – Through October 11, 2009

Through photography and film, this thought- and emotion-provoking exhibition provides a visual discourse on how key life events are celebrated and honored, and how pivotal life decisions are made by a number of different cultures. Each stage of life is depicted by simple everyday situations experienced in moments of joy and gratification as well as by poignant events of passage. The unfathomable scale of devastation inflicted upon humanity and our environment by both man-made and natural disasters also is intrinsic to this life story.

University of Maine Museum of Art (Bangor, Maine)

Roadside Ghosts: Photographs by Dave Anderson – Through December 31, 2009

Through the use of natural light and unconventional camera angles, Anderson emphasizes the beauty of locations off the beaten path and the often abstract nature of mundane objects. Above all, the artist offers a prolonged contemplation of his chosen subjects—a stretch of farmland, a ramshackle Ferris wheel, or a plastic grasshopper. What many may only catch in a fleeting moment or glimpse in their peripheral vision, Anderson records with great patience and reverence.

Museum of Fine Arts (Boston, Massachusetts)

Viva Mexico! Edward Weston and His Contemporaries – Through November 2, 2009

Photographer Edward Weston’s early biographer, Nancy Newhall, described Mexico as his “Paris,” because Weston’s short time there had such a lasting impact on his career. In the mid-1920s a vibrant photography movement in Mexico City centered around Weston and his Italian-born lover, Tina Modotti, and, during the 1930s, on the Surrealist-inspired work of Mexican native Manuel Alvarez Bravo, as well as the American photographer and documentary filmmaker Paul Strand.

Boston University Art Gallery (Boston, Massachusetts)

Missionary Photography in Korea: Encountering the West through Christianity – Through October 25, 2009

As the largest-ever showing of Korean missionary photographs in the U.S., this exhibition features a rare set of images taken in Korea from the late 1880s through the early 1940s—a period spanning the final decades of Chosŏn Korea and most of the era of Japanese colonial occupation. The arrival of the first Western missionaries in the late 1880s initiated a silent transformation that resulted in the establishment of new religious, social and cultural identities. Far from being mere two-dimensional black and white records of their subjects, the photographs reveal personal, human connections, as well as the larger, complex interplay between two sociopolitical and ethical systems.

Danforth Museum (Framingham, Massachusetts)

New England Photography Bicentennial 2009 – Through November 8, 2009

Every two years, the Danforth Museum of Art celebrates photography as an art form through a highly selective exhibition of photographers who reside throughout New England.

New Bedford Art Museum (New Bedford, Massachusetts)

Kimberly Witham: Transcendence – Through January 17, 2010

Speaking about her work, Witham has said: “As I photographed these animals and birds, I began to notice intricacies of which I was never aware. The creatures in these photographs are so common in suburbia that they often go unnoticed; they are considered neither beautiful nor precious.”

Internationally-acclaimed photographer Valérie Belin comes to PEM for her first solo show in the United States. Featuring 20 exquisite, monumental images,Valérie Belin: Made Up explores a photographer’s ability to manipulate perception of artificiality and reality. In her images of mannequins, models and still lifes, Belin’s work treats the iconic and the banal equally and displays both on a disarmingly large scale. Belin’s mid-career retrospective was received with enormous popular and critical praise across Europe – she is rapidly becoming a leader in the world of photography

On view in the exhibition are many of her most iconic images that collectively convey a portrait of America at all social levels, from Coney Island and jazz clubs to local hangouts and Fifth Avenue.

The Clark (Williamstown, Massachusetts)

Steps off the Beaten Path: Nineteenth-Century Photographs of Rome and Its Environs – October 11, 2009 – January 3, 2010

At the end of the nineteenth century as Rome was on its way to becoming a modern city and the capital of a unified Italy, a group of photographers began aiming their lenses at the streets, recording everyday scenes alongside the ancient ruins and Baroque churches of the eternal city. Their innovations foreshadowed what would later be called “street photography.” This exhibition gathers works by Vincenzo Carlo Domenico Baldassarre Simelli, Gustave Eugène Chauffourier, A. De Bonis, and Edmond Lebel, little known today but among the most accomplished Italian photographers of the time. The fleeting images they recorded convey a sense of intimacy and innocence capturing the charm of Roman byways, in contrast to the more conventional views of their peers. Many of the scenes they documented were subsequently swept away by modern development.

Williams College Museum of Art (Williamstown, Massachusetts)

Edward Steichen – Episodes from a Life in Photography – Through November 8, 2009

University of Michigan Museum of Art (Ann Arbor, Michigan)

Warhol Snapshots, 1973-1986 – Through October 25, 2009

This exhibition of Warhol’s photographs will direct focus to the signs of the times reflected in the mirror’s surface: the spirit of the seventies and eighties that Warhol and his art embodied. Those depicted include his friends, followers, and fellow denizens of the underground, the famous faces of his era as well as those not destined to be remembered.

The Lens of Impressionism: Photography and Painting Along the Normandy Coast, 1850-1874 – October 10, 2009 – January 3, 2010

This exhibition advances a new argument for the origins of what was called “the new painting,” namely that a unique convergence of forces—social, artistic, technological, and commercial—along the Normandy coast of France dramatically transformed the course of photography and painting (as well as of the region itself). Within this framework, the invention of the camera and the development of early fine art photography in that particular setting will be seen as the specific catalysts that brought about a new approach to painting.

Tweed Museum of Art (Duluth, Minnesota)

Andy Warhol: Pop and Polaroid – Through May 16, 2010

The photographs range from celebrity portraits to painting subjects that collectively demonstrate the range of Warhol’s aesthetic interests and the reach of his curious nature roving eye. Especially notable are the Polaroid portraits that reveal the artist’s frank engagement and fascination with extroverted personalities.

Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum (Minneapolis, Minnesota)

Xavier Tavera: Farsas – Through January 3, 2010

This exhibition features three bodies of work by Minneapolis-based photographer Xavier Tavera. The series-Enmascarados, Luchas, and El Circo-show Tavera’s interest in both quickly captured and highly staged portraiture. In both cases, Tavera’s work reveals the productive role of the sitter in the making of his or her own image. With subjects ranging from professional wrestlers on their way to the ring to a dramatically costumed young girl seated atop a horse before a painted sky, Tavera’s work illuminates the overarching, somewhat farcical artifice that is identity itself.

Minneapolis Institute of Arts (Minneapolis, Minnesota)

Josef Sudek and Czech Photography – Through February 28, 2010

Josef Sudek (1896-1976) is Czechoslovakia’s best known and influential creative photographer. He worked from the 1910s through the 1960s, producing ethereal landscapes, modernist still lifes, and sweeping panoramas of the city of Prague. Subsequent Czech photographers acknowledged Sudek’s pioneering work and contributed, in their own way, to the rich photographic legacy of their country.

Sheldon Museum of Art (Lincoln, Nebraska)

Altered Land, Photography in the 1970s – Through January 3, 2010

In the latter part of the 20th century, many American landscape photographers began to shed their 19th-century Romantic ideals about the natural purity of their subject. They started taking greater stock of the rising tide of human intervention on the land. Bracketing their purist ideals, they created work reflecting the inescapable tension between the environment and human presence.

Nevada Museum of Art (Reno, Nevada)

Carleton E. Watkins:  Yosemite Photographs – Through October 11, 2009

Discover the sites and landscapes of Yosemite as seen through the lens of nineteenth-century photographer Carleton E. Watkins. This small exhibition features views of Yosemite icons such as Half Dome, Yosemite Valley, the Merced River, and the redwood tree nicknamed Grizzly Giant. The sheer size of Yosemite’s natural monuments challenged artists, such as Watkins, to create equally large-scale works that reflected the epic scale of the future national park.

Faces: Chuck Close and Contemporary Portraiture – Through October 18, 2009

A leading figure in contemporary American art since the 1970s, Chuck Close is celebrated for his successful efforts to reinvigorate the field of modern portraiture. Best known for the monumental faces he has painted, photographed, and most recently woven into tapestries, Close has developed a formal methodology based on color and structural analysis that radically departs from traditional modes of portraiture. Featured alongside works by Close will be a selection of portraits by some of the twentieth and twenty-first century’s leading artists including Cindy Sherman, Shirin Neshat, Gerhard Richter, and Andy Warhol. These artists are noted for the innovative ways they approach issues of identity, autobiography, and narrative in their works.

Joan Myers: Western Power – Through December 6, 2009

Photographer Joan Myers recognizes that as consumers we often take the source of our power supply for granted, paying little attention to how energy is generated and distributed. In her series of panoramic photographs, Western Power, Myers makes visible a range of power plants—fueled by uranium, oil, gas, coal, water, solar, wind, and geothermal energy—throughout the Western United States.

The Grid: Bernd and Hilla Becher – Through February 7, 2010

German husband-and-wife team Bernd and Hilla Becher are best known for their photographs of large-scale industrial buildings that are typically arranged in grids.

See how Weston captured the magic of black and white prints through more than 100 exquisitely printed vintage photographs from the 1920s through the 1980s all handcrafted by the artist.

Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum (New Brunswick, New Jersey)

Four Perspectives Through the Lens: Soviet Art Photography in the 1970s-80s – Through March 28, 2010

This exhibition presents a selection of more than sixty photographs from the Norton and Nancy Dodge Collection of Soviet Nonconformist Art by Francisco Infante, Vladimir Kupriyanov, Boris Mikhailov, and Aleksandr Slyusarev, four major Soviet artists working with photography in 1970 –1980s. Photography was not officially considered an art in the Soviet Union at that time, and it was not taught in art schools. On the other hand, the amateur status of artistic photography, unrestricted by professional conventions or censorship, allowed great creative freedom and presented wide opportunities for experimentation. Soviet photographers made exceedingly canny, inventive, and highly individual use of the medium, expressing ideas that were both specific and universal in character.

Noyes Museum of Art (Oceanville, New Jersey)

Weird NJ Photography Exhibition – October 16, 2009 – February 28, 2010

Princeton University Art Museum (Princeton, New Jersey)

Emmet Gowin: A Collective Portrait – October 24, 2009 – January 17, 2010

New Mexico and New York: Photographs of Georgia O’Keeffe – Through January 10, 2010

Beginning in the 1910s, when Alfred Stieglitz began making photographs of Georgia O’Keeffe, to the end of her life, in 1986, O’Keeffe was sought out by numerous American photographers, who made her a subject in their work. When The Georgia O’Keeffe Foundation, closed in 2006, the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum was fortunate to receive its collection of photographs of O’Keeffe. On display will be selections of these works, along with other photographs of O’Keeffe from the Museum’s collection, taken at various times in her life by photographers such as Ansel Adams, Yousuf Karsh, Alfred Stieglitz, Tony Vaccaro, Todd Webb, and Don Worth.

Risk Hazekamp participated in the Harwood Museum’s Artist in Residence program during the summer of 2009. The exhibition “Valley of the Gods” includes work created during her stay in Taos. Hazekamp uses photography to explore issues of identity and in particular, the way in which gender and identity intersect. By evoking and drawing upon mass media and popular visual language: advertising, fashion and movie genres, she questions the construction of gender-identities.

Albany Institute of History and Art (Albany, New York)

Life Along the Hudson: Photographs by Joseph Squillante – Through January 3, 2010

Joseph Squillante has spent the past three decades traveling the entire length of the Hudson. Like the Hudson River landscape painters before him, some of his photographs capture the beauty and romantic quality of the river while others focus on people who live and work along its shores, including farmers, fisherman, and biologists. Just as the photographs of the Adirondacks by Seneca Ray Stoddard in the late 1800s aided in the designation of the area as a state park, Squillante’s photographs of the Hudson River raise public awareness of the river’s importance.

Brooklyn Museum (Brooklyn, New York)

Who Shot Rock & Roll: A Photographic History, 1955 to the Present – October 30, 2009 – January 31, 2010

Who Shot Rock & Roll is the first major museum exhibition on rock and roll to put photographers in the foreground, acknowledging their creative and collaborative role in the history of rock music. From its earliest days, rock and roll was captured in photographs that personalized, and frequently eroticized, the musicians, creating a visual identity for the genre. The photographers were handmaidens to the rock and roll revolution, and their images communicate the social and cultural transformations that rock has fostered since the1950s. The exhibition is in six sections: rare and revealing images taken behind the scenes; tender snapshots of young musicians at the beginnings of their careers; exhilarating photographs of live performances that display the energy, passion, style, and sex appeal of the band on stage; powerful images of the crowds and fans that are often evocative of historic paintings; portraits revealing the soul and creativity, rather than the surface and celebrity, of the musicians; and conceptual images and album covers highlighting the collaborative efforts between the image makers and the musicians.

Burchfield Penney Art Center (Buffalo, New York)

Photographs of Clara E. Sipprell – Through November 22, 2009

This exhibition coincides with a new publication of poetry by Eric Gansworth of Canisius College, Buffalo, NY, illustrated with Milton Rogovin’s photographs of Native Americans of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) community of Western New York and Ontario, Canada. The photographs are documents of contemporary life and the social history on the reservations outside of Buffalo, near the Cattaraugus, Tonawanda and Tuscarora reservations and the Lower West Side of Buffalo. Specific tribes include the Seneca, Mohawk and the Tuscarora. The photographs were taken between 1963 and 1993.

Fenimore Art Museum (Cooperstown, New York)

Walker Evans: Carbon and Silver – Through December 31, 2009

In Walker Evans: Carbon and Silver, exhibition curator John T. Hill presents a new perspective on this work by comparing gelatin silver contact prints with contemporary ink-jet prints made from digital files. The enlarged prints reveal intricate details less accessible in the earlier versions of the images, including gelatin silver prints, books and magazines.

The Picker Art Gallery (Hamilton, New York)

Edward Curtis: Photogravures from The North American Indian – Through October 11, 2009

Twenty photogravures from Colgate’s Special Collections Library are featured in Edward Curtis: Photogravures from ‘The North American Indian.’The photos demonstrate the range of tribes and geographical areas that Edward S. Curtis (1868-1952) studied for The North American Indian, 20 volumes and portfolios of photographs and writings that he published between 1907 and 1930. Curtis hoped “to form a comprehensive and permanent record of all the important tribes of the United States and Alaska that still retain to a considerable degree their … customs and habits.” His work has often been criticized, however, for romanticizing and re-staging the past.

Remember? Photographs before Digitization – Through December 20, 2009

Remember? Photographs before Digitization provides an opportunity to enjoy the qualities of photography that get lost in reproduction. Digital photographs are ubiquitous on the internet and counted in the billions, and this show reminds contemporary viewers of the allure of original photographic prints produced by laborious processes in the darkroom. The exhibition of approximately 90 photographs offers an overview of art photography in Colgate University’s holdings, drawn from the collections of the Picker Art Gallery and Case Library. It includes daguerreotypes, albumen prints, and silver gelatin prints from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day.

Hecksher Museum of Art (Huntington, New York)

Photography from the Collection – Through January 3, 2010

From the time of its invention in 1839, photography has fascinated the public with its ability to capture the actual appearance of people, places, and things. The holdings of The Heckscher Museum include documentary photographers such as Berenice Abbott, N. Jay Jaffee, Neil Scholl, and the Russian photojournalist Mark Markov-Grinberg; street photographers such as Larry Fink, Leon Levinstein, and Gary Winogrand; and nature photographers such as Stuart McCallum and the environmental artist Barbara Roux. Experimental work by Man Ray, who created photographic images without using a camera, and Joe Constantino, who works with infrared techniques, is also represented. Other highlights of this installation include Eadward Muybridge, who used the camera to document human and animal motion, and Stanley Twardowicz, who experimented with abstraction photography.

Long Island Moderns: Artists on the North Shore from Edward Steichen to Cindy Sherman – Through January 10, 2009

This exhibition celebrates the rich, yet often overlooked, role of Huntington and the North Shore of Long Island in American art. For more than a century, Long Island has attracted and inspired innovative artists of the highest caliber who have created groundbreaking works of enduring importance. While the art produced on Long Island’s East End has been well documented, the artistic history of Huntington and the North Shore are understood only piecemeal despite the fact that significant artists have worked here.

P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center (Long Island City, New York)

Robert Bergman: Selected Portraits – Through January 4, 2010

Bergman’s epic series of portraits documents the physical and spiritual manifestation of Americans at the approach of the millennium. Of this series Toni Morrison has written, “Occasionally there arises an event or a moment that one knows immediately will forever mark a place in the history of artistic endeavor. Robert Bergman’s portraits represent such a moment, such an event. In all its burnished majesty his gallery refuses us unearned solace and one by one by one each photograph unveils us, asserting a beauty, a kind of rapture, that is as close as can be to a master template of the singularity, the community, the unextinguishable sacredness of the human race.”

Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art (New Paltz, New York)

The Hudson River – A Great American Treasure: Greg Miller – Through November 29, 2009

This exhibition presents twenty recent color photographs of Hudson Valley landscapes by Orange County, NY-based photographer Greg Miller. Depicting views of the river and environs from New York City’s George Washington Bridge to the river’s small upstate tributaries, Greg Miller’s views of well-known-and less well-known-vistas capture the complexity of this important tourist destination, venue for trade and industry, and site of this country’s first significant conservation efforts.

Panorama of the Hudson River: Greg Miller – Through December 13, 2009

Greg Miller has recently created a complete photographic panorama of the Hudson River, including both banks and stretching from Manhattan to Albany. The exhibition will include the Monroe, N.Y.-based artist’s photographs of the riverbanks of the Hudson River, paired with those from the 1910 photographic panorama developed for the Hudson River Day Line Steamer company.

Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, New York)

Looking In: Robert Frank’s “The Americans” – Through January 3, 2010

This exhibition celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of The Americans, Robert Frank’s influential suite of black-and-white photographs made on a cross-country road trip in 1955–56. Although Frank’s depiction of American life was criticized when the book was released in the U.S. in 1959, it soon became recognized as a masterpiece of street photography. Born in Switzerland in 1924, Frank is considered one of the great living masters of photography. The exhibition will feature all 83 photographs published in The Americans and will be the first time that this body of work is presented to a New York audience. In addition, the exhibition includes contact sheets that Frank used to create the book; earlier photographs made in Europe, Peru, and New York; a short film by the artist on his life; and his later re-use of iconic images from the series.

Museum of Modern Art (New York, New York)

New Photography 2009 – Through January 11, 2010

Although the six artists in this installation—Walead Beshty, Daniel Gordon, Leslie Hewitt, Carter Mull, Sterling Ruby, and Sara VanDerBeek—represent diverse points of view, working methods, and pictorial modes ranging from abstract to representational, their images all begin in the studio or the darkroom and result from processes involving collection, assembly, and manipulation. Many of the works are made with everyday materials and objects, as well as images from the Internet, magazines, newspapers, and books. Some of the artists also work in other mediums and their pictures relate to disciplines such as drawing, sculpture, and installation. As traditional photographic techniques are being quickly replaced by digital technologies, the artists included here examine the process and structure of making photographs.

New Museum (New York, New York)

Intersections Intersected: The Photography of David Goldblatt – Through October 11, 2009

Over the last fifty years, David Goldblatt has documented the complexities and contradictions of South African society. His photographs capture the social and moral value systems that governed the tumultuous history of his country’s segregationist policies and continue to influence its changing political landscape. Goldblatt began photographing professionally in the early 1960s, focusing on the effects of the National Party’s legislation of apartheid. The son of Jewish Lithuanian parents who fled to South Africa to escape religious persecution, Goldblatt was forced into a peculiar situation, being at once a white man in a racially segregated society and a member of a religious minority with a sense of otherness. He used the camera to capture the true face of apartheid as his way of coping with horrifying realities and making his voice heard. Goldblatt did not try to capture iconic images, nor did he use the camera as a tool to entice revolution through propaganda. Instead, he reveals a much more complex portrait, including the intricacies and banalities of daily life in all aspects of society. Whether showing the plight of black communities, the culture of the Afrikaner nationalists, the comfort of white suburbanites, or the architectural landscape, Goldblatt’s photographs are an intimate portrayal of a culture plagued by injustice.

Studio Museum in Harlem (New York, New York)

We Come with the Beautiful Things: Expanding the Walls 2009 – Through October 25, 2009

We Come with the Beautiful Things is comprised of twelve raw, distinct visual narratives. Using black-and-white photography as a medium, each artist has created a body of work that articulates and documents their surroundings in a cleverly threaded patchwork of unique themes. These young photographers’ themes range from issues rooted in race and sexual identity to abstract perspectives on the body.

Whitney Museum of American Art (New York, New York)

Roni Horn aka Roni Horn – November 6, 2009 – January 24, 2010

For more than thirty years, Roni Horn (b. 1955) has been developing work of concentrated visual power and intellectual rigor, often exploring issues of gender, identity, androgyny, and the complex relationship between object and subject. Because the artist chooses not to privilege any one medium, Horn’s art defies easy categorization. Materials – often used with remarkable virtuosity and sensitivity – take on metaphorical qualities and relate key themes with great visual power. Horn’s interest in doubling and identity, for example, is central to understanding her approach to the genres of portraiture and landscape. Image-specific photographic portraits and ethereally beautiful abstract cast glass sculpture relay aspects of both. Similarly, Horn’s intricately cut and pigmented drawings suggest something of the elemental nature of the earth that relates in turn to how the landscape of Iceland, where Horn has traveled and made work since 1975, has informed her practice.

Nasher Museum of Art (Durham, North Carolina)

Beyond Beauty: Photographs from the Duke University Special Collections Library – Through October 18, 2009

Through the work of significant and well-known 19th century photographers as well as the work of contemporary documentary photographers, Beyond Beauty will trace the history of the photographic print from albumen, platinum, gelatin silver, photogravure and color photographs to the most recent “born digital” examples.

Andy Warhol Polaroids – November 12, 2009 – February 21, 2010

There may never have been an artist and a technology so better suited to each other than Andy Warhol and the Polaroid camera. Producing images by the thousands, the Polaroid camera allowed Warhol to revel in mass produced art as well as the fabulousness of instant celebrity. Most of Warhol’s Polaroids were never formally exhibited during his lifetime, but nearly 300 Polaroids and 100 gelatin silver black-and-white prints, taken by Andy Warhol from 1969 to 1986, will be on display.

Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland (Cleveland, Ohio)

Hugging and Wrestling: Contemporary Israeli Photography and Video – Through January 10, 2010

In Hugging and Wrestling, a vivid portrait of Israel emerges through the perspectives of nine artists who respond to the complex shifting realities of the country today. The images are both beautiful and powerful, some deeply personal, others more philosophical, some political. With distinct points of view, the artists portray a land rich in history, and the convergence of multiple cultures, beliefs, and ways of life. But while the artists embrace Israel, they wrestle with political discord, religious divisions, and social inequities. They search for personal and collective identity in a vibrant, evolving, contemporary culture, while wrestling with the vulnerabilities of a country with contested territories where conflict is imminent and ever present.

Philadelphia Museum of Art (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)

Frederick Sommer Photographs – Through January 3, 2010

Over his long life Frederick Sommer (American, 1905–1999) crafted a body of art inflected by surrealist ideas and distinguished by his meticulous love for the art of photographic printing, his broad knowledge of art history, and a keen sense of how the parts of a picture come together to produce meaning. This exhibition surveys five decades of his photography, including disorienting compositions such as Arizona Landscape (1943), a horizonless image that only gradually resolves its components into a desolate desert scene, and equally bewildering subjects such as Max Ernst (1946), in which Sommer experimented with layered negatives, superimposing an image of a rock onto a portrait of the pioneering Dada and surrealist artist to create the illusion of a human morphing into rock.

Woodmere Art Museum (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)

Third Woodmere Triennial of Contemporary Photography and Severo Antonelli – Through January 3, 2010

Philadelphia possesses one of the most significant concentrations of top-tier photographers in the nation. Woodmere’s Triennial exhibitions, initiated in 2003, bring together works by the finest of these artists in a popular celebration of a medium whose power to move us keeps growing. This year’s Triennial curator is Stephen Perloff, founder and editor of The Photo Review.

Woodmere Art Museum’s collecting and exhibiting of photography began in earnest with the 1986 acquisition of the collection of Severo Antonelli (1907-1995), famed South Philadelphia photographer and founder of the Antonelli Institute of Photography. While Antonelli’s photographic output included high achievements in the industrial/commercial sphere, his reputation was founded on his imaginative portrayal of the human figure and face. His figurative works range from playful to provocative and his portraits successfully penetrate the character and personality of the sitter. Woodmere possesses more than 100 of Severo Antonelli’s photographs, spanning his entire career.

Digital to Daguerrotype: Portraits of People – Through January 31, 2010

Most photographs are of people—this has been true since the invention of photography. This exhibition of more than 70 works from the permanent collection and local private collections reveals how photographers from the past 160 years have explored the human subject, through an exceptional range of practices: from daguerreotypes, to black-and-white silver gelatin prints and color chromogenic prints, to digital inkjet prints. Included are rarely exhibited gems by masters of the medium—such as Julia Margaret Cameron, August Sander, Alfred Stieglitz, Robert Frank, and Garry Winogrand—alongside the work of little-known photographers.

Palmer Museum of Art (University Park, Pennsylvania)

Big Shot Shuffle: Photographs by Andy Warhol – Through January 24, 2010

During the early 1970s, the Polaroid Corporation briefly manufactured the Big Shot, a camera specifically intended for close-up portraits. The Big Shot’s fixed focal length forced users to “shuffle” back and forth until the desired focus was achieved. Although the camera failed to gain widespread popularity, Warhol was an early enthusiast of the somewhat unwieldy apparatus, in part because of its ability to produce images with nearly standardized compositions and lighting, which made them useful as sources for larger silkscreened portraits.

Chuck Close: A Couple of Ways of Doing Something – Through November 8, 2009

A Couple Ways of Doing Something features Chuck Close’s intimate portraits of leading contemporary artists, paired with Bob Holman’s witty and beautifully typeset poems. The daguerreotypes offer an immensely revealing study of the subjects, extending the hyperrealist tradition of portraiture for which Close is renowned. In keeping with the exhibition title, Chuck Close has included examples of his other works taken from each daguerreotype in a variety of media, including photogravures, digital pigment prints, and large-scale tapestries.

Amon Carter Museum (Fort Worth, Texas)

Circle of Friends: Portraits of Artists – Through November 29, 2009

University of Virginia Art Museum (Charlottesville, Virginia)

Abstract Photography: Selections from Glenstone – Through January 3, 2010

Abstract Photography presents works by seven artists dating from the 1970s to the present. The exhibition demonstrates how over the course of thirty years photographers have rejected certain modernist aesthetics in favor of conceptual theory, resulting in eventless imagery devoid of specific narrative. Such works as Index (1973) by William Wegman and How Many Pictures (1989) by Louise Lawler exemplify these tendencies while Vik Muñiz’s Equivalents (1993) and Wolfgang Tillmans’ Himmelblau (2005) further develop the syntactic investigations of these earlier images in works that are decidedly of the twenty-first century. In these pictures, photography as document is disrupted and expanded and the intimacy of a singular object gives way to seriality and monumentality.

Chrysler Museum of Art (Norfolk, Virginia)

Norfolk and Western Railway Photographs by O. Winston Link – Through October 18, 2009

Henry Art Gallery (Seattle, Washington)

Inside-Out: Portrait Photographs from the Permanent Collection – Through October 25, 2009

When a subject and a photographer come together and agree that a likeness will be made, a complex dynamic is set in motion. Vanity comes into play, as does the subject’s comfort or discomfort at being scrutinized by the camera. The influence of popular culture may also affect body posture and expression, as can the relationship between the photographer and the sitter. Do they know each other? And if so, is there trust or intimacy between them? This exhibition contains a selection of photographs largely from the noted Monsen collection – including images by Imogen Cunningham, Patrick Faigenbaum, Nan Goldin, and others – that suggests a broad definition of portraiture. From pictures of artists’ friends and family members to formal studio portraits, the works in this exhibition assert photography’s capacity both to register a subject’s physical characteristics and hint at the complexity within.

Seattle Art Museum (Seattle, Washington)

Everything Under the Sun: Photographs by Imogen Cunningham – Through August 29, 2010

Imogen Cunningham (1883–1976) was one of the most well-known photographers from the Northwest. Working at a time when women photographers were few, Cunningham dedicated her life to her art. Drawn entirely from the Seattle Art Museum’s permanent collection, this exhibition of 60 photographs from 1915 to 1973 reveal Cunningham’s inquisitive eye—from portraits of Frida Kahlo, Alfred Stieglitz and other well-known artists of her time to portraits of her husband on Mt. Rainier, considered some of the first known photographs to be published of a male nude taken by a female photographer (in 1916) and much more. Spanning the artist’s career, the photographs on view demonstrate the breadth and range of Cunningham’s artistic vision and showcase one of the strengths of SAM’s photography collection.
