Perfect Brightness: Discovery and Escape in Contemporary Photography
November 10, 2017 – April 29, 2018
Curated by: Sarah Fillmore
Perfect Brightness features photographs from the Permanent Collection and is based in so-called "straight" photography or practices that attempt to depict a scene or subject in sharp focus and detail, commensurate with the qualities that distinguish photography as a discipline from other visual media, particularly painting. As the subtitle suggests, the works included in this exhibition elicit ideas of travel, sending us on a journey around the world.
