A New Vision: Modernist Photography at Currier Gallery of art, Manchester (NH)
Anyone interested in a gathering to have a look at this show?
Looks to be a veritable Who's Who in 20th century photography, 2 Westons', Margaret Bourke-White, Paul Strand, AA, many others.
This exhibition explores the critical and dynamic role photography played in the development of the Modern Art movement and the reciprocal influences among all media that shaped the modernist visual vocabulary.
Drawn from the Currier’s growing collection of important historic photographs, A New Vision will include 125 works that trace the impact of photography on the development of the modernist movement. Beginning in the early twentieth century, painters, sculptors, photographers and printmakers in Europe and America envisioned a new abstract visual vocabulary that broke from representational traditions of the past. Form and composition became as important as subject matter.
