Photo Eye: Avant-Garde Photography in Europe
March 15 - July 6, 2014
Innovation and experimentation transformed 20th-century photography.
Photographers working in Europe during the period between the two World Wars made images that remain some of the most memorable to the media's history even to this day. The artists of the time worked with a dedication to bringing a modern style to the work. The influences of Cubism, Constructivism, Dadaism, and Surrealism as well as new social conditions- technology, urbanization, and cinema, all had their role to play in the forming of the new visual language. This exhibition charts the shifts through such noteworthy artists as Constantin Brancusi, Ilse Bing, Andre Kertesz, Man Ray, Laszlo Maholy-Nagy, and Joseph Sudek and draws from new acquisitions and select loans.
