American Modern: Abbott, Evans, Bourke-White

July 9, 2011 - October 2, 2011

Upper Jette Galleries

In the 1930s, photographers pushed the genre of documentary photography to the forefront of public culture in the United States and onto the walls of newly opened museums and art galleries. This exhibition, focusing exclusively on the work of American photographers Berenice Abbott, Walker Evans, and Margaret Bourke-White, provides new insights into that historic development. Organized by the Amon Carter Museum of American Art and the Colby Museum, the exhibition comes to Waterville after its display at the Amon Carter and the Art Institute of Chicago.
