If you're planning an upcoming trip into Chicago, the new exhibit, Photography on Display: Modern Treasures will be coming to the Art Institute of Chicago in just a few weeks. The exhibition appears as though it will be fantastic as it explores the different avenues for presenting photographs in the world.
The exhibition runs from May 9–September 13, 2009
“This exhibition, presented in conjunction with the debut of the new photography galleries of the Modern Wing, explores the different avenues for presenting photographs in the world. Around 130 works by some 70 modernist figures, including classics such as Albert Renger-Patzsch, Walker Evans, and Dorothea Lange, demonstrate the range of photography’s spaces of display: from salon exhibitions to commercial galleries, magazine spreads, or art-school assignments. Each of these spaces helped shape the ideas that continue to make photography a singularly influential field.”If I’m in Chicago during this exhibition, I’m not going to miss it.
As I travel, I love seeing the work of other photographers as I hope you do. If you know of a new photographic exhibition which you think the Blog should publicize, please contact me.
