Great Photographs of the 20th Century: From the Street
This is the gallery’s second annual Great Photographs of the 20th Century exhibition, following the success of last year’s exhibition titled Staged and Startled. This recurring program is an opportunity for collectors and the public to view important and rare vintage photographs that would usually be restricted to a museum setting.
This year’s exhibition, From the Street, is an examination of street photography in works ranging from the 1930s to the present. The exhibition will include iconic examples of the genre, such as Robert Frank’s Rodeo, New York City (1954), Lisette Model’s Promenade des Anglais, Nice (1934), and Lee Friedlander’s Newark, N.J. (1962), alongside rarely exhibited photographs by masters of photography such as Richard Avedon and Garry Winogrand. The exhibition uniquely examines each photographer’s eye and view of their surroundings. From unknowing subjects on the streets of Paris to the rural landscapes of Iran, every artist has brilliantly recorded the environment around them and with it, have captured a slice of life and the character of their community.
