This exhibition will celebrate the remarkable ascendancy of photography in the last century, and Ann Tenenbaum and Thomas H. Lee’s magnificent promised gift of over sixty extraordinary photographs in honor of The Met’s 150th anniversary in 2020. The exhibition will include masterpieces by the medium’s greatest practitioners, including works by Paul Strand, Dora Maar, Man Ray, and László Moholy-Nagy; Edward Weston, Walker Evans, and Joseph Cornell; Diane Arbus, Andy Warhol, Sigmar Polke, and Cindy Sherman.
Another stellar exhibit at the MET is now available for online touring called “Photography’s Last Century.” COVID-19 may have interrupted most of our planned events this year, but the good news is there are so many more virtual galleries up online now. This exhibit has quite a few renowned images from famous street photographers over the past century making it worth a view for both its aesthetic and historic value. Wherever you live, it’s easier than ever to head on over to the MET and check out this gallery and plenty of other offerings from one of my favorite museums.
