Although I'm not a big fan of Bernice Abbott's work, Margaret Bourke- White, and Walker Evans have been some of my idols since boyhood and I would love to attend but about four thousand miles is just too far to travel.
both shows sound worth seeing, esp. the latter for me. Thanks for the heads up!
It's time to bump this thread! These two shows are both up, as well as a third: Masterworks of American Photography.
Saw all of this on Friday. The AA is still up until Nov 7. Some of the usual suspects, plus some lesser known images. so worth seeing.
Masterworks: A little of everything, including some 19th Century stuff. Small show, but recommended.
B-W, Evans and Abbott: Large show. Curated from the standpoint of documentary work, with the emphasis on the 1930s. Still, the prints were for the most part excellent. Many Bourke-White industrial shots - all superb. (I'm a fan) A good bit of Abbott's New York stuff and plenty of depression era social commentary by all three.
If you are in North Texas - go see this.
