> DESCRIPTION

The act of anticipating the gaze of the camera is the subject of The Importance of Being Photographed. Stemming from a gift from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, this exhibition brings together Polaroids by Andy Warhol in the permanent collection of the USF Contemporary Art Museum, with a select grouping of contemporary photographers. These artists create situations where the subject and the photographer engage in a dialogue about the nature of being photographed—addressing issues of class, sexuality, sensuality, shame, despair, and privacy. In addition to Warhol, the artists include Tina Barney, Katy Grannan, Jason Lazarus, Malerie Marder, and Catherine Opie.
