Something’s in the air, major new photography exhibitions are opening everywhere. The Museum of Modern Art in New York City is opening Pictures by Women: A History of Modern Photography on 7 May.

Including over two hundred works, this exhibition features celebrated masterworks and new acquisitions from the collection by such figures as Diane Arbus, Berenice Abbott, Claude Cahun, Imogen Cunningham, Rineke Dijkstra, Florence Henri, Roni Horn, Nan Goldin, Helen Levitt, Lisette Model, Lucia Moholy, Tina Modotti, Cindy Sherman, Kiki Smith, and Carrie Mae Weems, among many others. The exhibition also highlights works drawn from a variety of curatorial departments, including Bottoms,a large-scale Fluxus wallpaper by Yoko Ono.

“…always bring it to a bigger level and think about space.”

An informative follow up to the link below about the Guggenheim Museum, curator David van der Leer discusses (very briefly) his thoughts about the show in this New York Times article about young curators in New York City. David is only 30. Jerk.

…but always bring it to a bigger level and think about space. And it doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re only working with architects and designers but it can also be with artists, with sociologists, with mountain climbers for that matter. As long as people think about space, either about the production, the design, or the experience or the analysis, then I think we’re on the right for what I’m trying to do here.

The full audio interviews with all curators are here.

The article is here.

“Movements” by David Eskenazi

David Eskenazi recently opened a new exhibition of his photographic work at EDGE Gallery in Pittsburgh, PA. David was trained as an architect but has been developing a series of photographs that address the relationship between space, image and movement.

The work is stunning. Have a look.
