The black and white photographs of Americans Paul Strand (1890-1976) and Emmet Gowin (b. 1941) are marked by elegance and visual power. This exhibition presents overviews of careers in which Strand and Gowin pursued and expanded the expressive possibilities of portraiture, landscape, and still life. This exhibition in two adjacent galleries will highlight 70 prints spanning a hundred years, including rare works of exceptional quality acquired by the Museum from Strand’s archive in 1978.
The Weight of Things: Photographs by Paul Strand and Emmet Gowin is curated by Eric Lutz, associate curator of prints, drawings and photographs, and will be on view in galleries 234 and 235 from November 8 through February 16, 2014.
