Event Details:

Many American and European modernists chose to photograph beaches and deserts as an antidote to urban or industrialized landscapes. Artists Frederick Sommer (U.S.A., born in Italy, 1905–1999) and Edward Weston (U.S.A., 1886–1958), among others, approached these different and yet strangely similar landscapes in many ways: they could be evocative settings with distinct historic and symbolic associations, or backdrops defined by their pure and stark visual textures. This installation explores approximately 12 photographs.
