'The Original Copy: Photography of Sculpture, 1839 to Today'
'The Original Copy: Photography of Sculpture, 1839 to Today' offers a critical assessment of the aesthetic and theoretical intersections of photography and sculpture, with special attention paid to how the one medium is implicated in the creative interpretation of the other. Presented are prints of famous photographers and groundbreaking artists who used this medium in a creative and original way for their three-dimensional works: Eugène Atget, Hans Bellmer, Herbert Beyer, Constantin Brancusi, Brassaï, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Claude Cahun, Marcel Duchamp, Peter Fischli and David Weiss, Robert Frank, David Goldblatt, Hannah Höch, André Kertész, Man Ray, Bruce Nauman, Gillian Wearing, Hannah Wilke, Iwao Yamawaki and many others.
With approximately 300 exceptional photographs by more than 100 artists this exhibition spans the period from the 19th century to the present and focuses mainly on showcasing the possibilities of photography to influence our understanding of sculpture whilst simultaneously challenging it.
The exhibition is organized by The Museum of Modern Art, New York and is traveling under the auspices of The International Council of The Museum of Modern Art.
