  • Transformations: American Photographs from the 1970s

    2024-01-15 – 2024-07-07 · Philadelphia, United States of America
    Transformations: American Photographs from the 1970s

    The 1970s witnessed an unprecedented explosion of interest and activity around photography, and was a hub for wildly varying conceptions of what photography could look like, how it could be used, and what it could stand for. On one hand, the 1970s were an apex of traditional black and white darkroom photography, as artists who had worked in relative obscurity were suddenly thrust into the spotlight. But it was also the end of an era, as younger photographers began experimenting with mediums, formats, and conceptual approaches that defied established modes of photographic art.

  • Ellen Graham: Unscripted

    2024-03-02 – 2024-06-16 · West Palm Beach, United States of America
    Ellen Graham: Unscripted

    For over six decades, Ellen Graham has photographed actors, musicians, models, athletes, and royals at their most vulnerable: unplanned, unposed, and unscripted. Imbuing a sense of immediacy, showing moments of intimacy and humor, and celebrating her remarkable ability to disarm her subjects, Graham’s photographs provide unique insight into a person’s inner dimensions. This exhibition highlights several of Graham’s gifts to the Norton along with a generous array of special loans – both photographs and photographic ephemera – from the Ellen Graham Archive.

  • I’m a thousand different people–Every one is real

    2024-03-15 – 2025-01-05 · New York, United States of America
    I’m a thousand different people–Every one is real

    Taking its title from a drawing by artist and queer icon Candy Darling, this exhibition brings together a selection of works recently acquired by the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art. Darling’s words evoke the multidimensionality of queer and trans life and artistic practices that insist on defining art and life entirely on one’s own terms. Taken together, the exhibited works–across various media and representational styles–embrace a spectral, prismatic approach to rendering LGBTQIA+ existence. Both contemporary and historical, the works elide the demand for authenticity and easy legibility, instead holding space for plurality, reinvention, and fantasy.

  • Hippolyte Bayard: A Persistent Pioneer

    2024-04-09 – 2024-07-07 · Los Angeles, United States of America
    Hippolyte Bayard: A Persistent Pioneer

    Hippolyte Bayard–Parisian bureaucrat by day and persistent inventor and artist after hours–is one of the lesser-known pioneers of photography. This exhibition presents an extraordinarily rare opportunity to view some of Bayard’s highly fragile photographs dating from the 1840s–the first decade of the new medium–and to explore his early processes, subjects, and strategies to achieve recognition. It highlights Getty’s treasured Bayard album, one of the first photographic albums ever created.
