Photography Exhibition: The Museum of Modern Art - New Photography 2009

New Photography 2009MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art in New York City, has exhibitions displaying some of the most interesting trends in contemporary photography. New Photography 2009 is one of those intriguing exhibitions.

This exhibition will run through January 11, 2010

New Photography 2009 is a thematic presentation of significant recent work in photography that examines and expands the conventional definitions of the medium. 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.
I think this is another “not to miss” exhibition. I know I’ll be visiting this exhibition later this month.

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.
