XL 19 New Acquisitions in Photography at The Edward Steichen Photography Galleries

Galleries 1-4 are open on May 10, and Gallery 5 is on August 23

Featuring a selection of recent acquisitions by an international, cross-generational group of artists, XL: 19 New Acquisitions in Photography addresses photography’s influential role in contemporary art. These primarily multi-part and serial works, which are being shown at MoMA for the first time, range from postwar experiments with darkroom processes (such as photograms and photomontages), to 1970s feminist performances conceived for the camera, to political and documentary engagements with labor history and globalization in the 1980s and 1990s, to forms of archival and historical reconstitution made since 2000.

Highlights of the installation include a selection of experimental photo-collages by Robert Frank, Stephen Shore’s iconic Uncommon Places series, a cache of materials documenting Lynn Hershman Leeson’s avant-garde experiment creating a fictional alter ego, groupings of works by Allan Sekula and Yto Barrada examining issues of globalization, cameraless pictures by Liz Deschenes and Mariah Robertson, and a section (opening August 23) devoted to photographic works exploring the intersection between the personal and the broadly political by Phil Collins, Stan Douglas, Leslie Hewitt, Taryn Simon, and Hank Willis Thomas.
