> DESCRIPTION

The 1910s—a period remembered for "The Great War," Einstein's theory of relativity, the Russian Revolution, and the birth of Hollywood—was a dynamic and tumultuous decade that ushered in the modern era. This new age—as it was captured by the quintessentially modern art of photography—will be the subject of this eclectic centennial exhibition devoted to photography of the 1910s. Drawn exclusively from the Museum's collection, "Our Future Is In The Air" will feature forty-four photographs by some twenty-five artists, including Eugène Atget, E. J. Bellocq, Alvin Langdon Coburn, Eugène Druet, Lewis Hine, Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Adolph de Meyer, Christian Schad, Morton Schamberg, Charles Sheeler, and Stanislaw Witkiewicz. The exhibition will complement the concurrent presentation of the groundbreaking photographs by Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen, and Paul Strand, in Stieglitz, Steichen, Strand.
