Artist-Led Exhibition Walkthrough for New Topographics @ LACMA

06 Dec Artist-Led Exhibition Walkthrough for New Topographics @ LACMA

I will be leading an artist-led exhibition walkthrough for the New Topographics exhibit at LACMA on Sunday, December 6th at 2 pm. Please meet at the front of the exhibit in BCAM on the 2nd floor if you would like to attend. The event is free with paid admission, tickets required (available one hour before the program).

New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape is “a restaging of the landmark exhibition first seen in 1975 at the International Museum of Photography, George Eastman House. “New Topographics” signaled the emergence of a new photographic approach to landscape: romanticization gave way to cooler appraisal, focused on the everyday built environment and more attuned to conceptual concerns of the broader art field. More than two-thirds of the photographs by the original ten participants—Robert Adams, Lewis Baltz, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Joe Deal, Frank Gohlke, Nicholas Nixon, John Schott, Stephen Shore, and Henry Wessel, Jr.—are displayed.”
