    AA; Abbott, Bourke-White and Evans

    Two upcoming shows at the Amon Carter in Ft. Worth:

    May 29, 2010–November 7, 2010
    Ansel Adams: Eloquent Light

    This exhibition of forty landmark and lesser-known works by the renowned artist-photographer is drawn from the Carter’s holdings and a private collection.


    October 2, 2010–January 2, 2011
    American Modern: Abbott, Evans, Bourke-White

    This special exhibition demonstrates how documentary photography transformed modern art in America through an examination of the work of photographers Berenice Abbott, Margaret Bourke-White, and Walker Evans.

    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.

    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.
