"Visions of America" Exhibition

Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography

poster for "Visions of America" Exhibition

This event has ended.

America has been a leader in the realm of photographic expression since the early days of the medium, especially throughout the 20th century - both as a fertile ground for creating photographic work and as the subject of its expression: for Americans certainly, but also especially for artists from Europe and Asia.
This "Visions of America" exhibition at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography is divided into 3 parts and eras, exploring the history of the medium from the days of the 19th century daguerreotype up until the present. Through a consideration of America as place and locale - including interpretations of that place through the eyes of non-Americans - this exhibition aims to reassess the notion of "America" through an examination of photography and photographic history in this country. In addition, the exhibition is not just a means of reading the history of America since its founding, but also a way of interpreting the multi-layered global-local character of American culture.
In short, "Visions of America" is a prime opportunity for one and all, not just photography buffs, to rediscover works and photographers already familiar to Japanese audiences through this approach.

第一部です。

写真の歴史と発展をアメリカの歴史や分化をクロスリンクさせて、互いに及ぼした影響と進化を知ることの出来る写真展です。第一部は技術的な事の割合も高いですが、マイブリッジ、E.J.ベロック、スティーグリッツなどの写真も見ることが出来ます。
