Exhibition Curator Renee Maurer introduces American Moments: Photographs from The Phillips Collection.
In celebration of recent major gifts, The Phillips Collection presents for the first time a major photography exhibition drawn exclusively from the museum’s permanent collection. American Moments features more than 130 photographs by 33 artists that showcase the strength and variety of the museum’s fast-growing photography collection through examples of Modernism, street photography, documentary expression, and photojournalism. Works by Berenice Abbott, Esther Bubley, Bruce Davidson, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Louis Faurer, Joel Meyerowitz, and Arnold Newman among others evoke a sense of time, place, and experience in America.
