This exhibition presents a varied selection of photographs drawn from the permanent collection of Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), with a particular emphasis on the Cowles Collection, a gift of more than one hundred iconic works of the 20th century including photographs by Edward Steichen, Andy Warhol and Rineke Dijkstra. Relying on contemporary strategies for organizing and understanding information, the exhibition will incorporate sequential and salon-style hangs in its installation. Within this format, new modes of visual literacy— created by the ever-growing influence of digital media and the way in which images circulate and are indexed through the Internet and by a continued interest in the form of the archive—are brought to bear on the Museum’s strong and expanding collection of photography. Allowing the viewer to see the works through visual cues and historical connections, looking at the image within the photograph as well as relationships between photographs, this exhibition seeks to engender new ‘ways of looking.’

This show will employ digital didactic labels and text on iPads as part of PAMM’s growing engagement with technology and new platforms for education in the galleries.
