Seen & Unseen: Photographs by Imogen Cunningham
SEEN & UNSEEN: PHOTOGRAPHS BY IMOGEN CUNNINGHAM
August 11–October 15, 2018
The photographs of Imogen Cunningham (1883-1976) reflect vital developments in 20th century art and photography. She is recognized for helping to establish photography as an art form. Never tied to one style of photography or subject, Cunningham had a signature view in what she created. Working for over seventy years, her photographs are seductive and dynamic and inspired by a multitude of sources. Cunningham was one of the most experimental photographers in her lifetime. In this exhibition, unusual and rare images are presented alongside iconic ones, revealing why this American artist is one of the most important pioneers of photography and demonstrating how the unseen for Imogen Cunningham was eternally as important as the familiar.
This exhibit consists of silver gelatin prints from the Imogen Cunningham Trust and is curated by Celina Lunsford. The exhibition is a production by Meg Partridge, Director of the Imogen Cunningham Trust, and Photographic Traveling Exhibitions. Sponsored in part by NYCM Insurance.
