Photography Exhibition: The Museum of Modern Art - Pictures by Women: A History of Modern Photography

Tina Modotti. Workers Parade. 1926. Gelatin silver printThe Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), in New York, NY has some of the most amazing exhibitions of contemporary photography in the US. Pictures by Women: A History of Modern Photography looks like it will be another in their series of wonderful exhibitions at the Museum. If you’re in the New York City area, don’t miss this exhibition. I plan to go myself, if at all possible. 

The exhibition will through March 21, 2011.
For much of photography’s 170-year history, women have expanded its roles by experimenting with every aspect of the medium. Pictures by Women: A History of Modern Photography presents a selection of outstanding photographs by women artists, charting the medium’s history from the dawn of the modern period to the present. Including over two hundred works, this exhibition features celebrated masterworks and new acquisitions from the collection by such figures as Diane Arbus, Berenice Abbott, Claude Cahun, Imogen Cunningham, Rineke Dijkstra, Florence Henri, Roni Horn, Nan Goldin, Helen Levitt, Lisette Model, Lucia Moholy, Tina Modotti, Cindy Sherman, Kiki Smith, and Carrie Mae Weems, among many others. The exhibition also highlights works drawn from a variety of curatorial departments, including Bottoms, a large-scale Fluxus wallpaper by Yoko Ono.
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.

Thanks for the heads-up about the exhibition. It's on my list to see next week when I visit New York.

I was at MOMA last week. This is a great exhibition. Ned's right. See it if you can.

I just left the exhibition and loved it Ned, so much that I'm sending this from my iPhone. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
