"USES OF PHOTOGRAPHY IN CONTEMPORARY ART"
1999-10-15 until 2000-02-20
Michael C. Carlos Museum, Emory University
Atlanta, GA, USA United States of America

A small exhibition of works on paper will trace the ways contemporary artists from the 1960s to the 1990s have incorporated photography in their work or used it to document their activities. Robert Rauschenberg's collage appropriation of images from newspapers and magazines and Josef Beuys's recording of his own performances establish the basis of this practice, which other artists extend in a variety of ways—from documenting installations to copying media images for ironic effects. The exhibition shows how photography has contributed to the conceptual art that has dominated recent decades.

In collaboration with the citywide event, Atlanta Celebrates Photography, the Carlos Museum’s exhibition will be curated by Dr. Clark Poling, Art History Department, Emory University, and Jeff Thompson, Art History Department Ph.D. candidate, Emory University.

Other artists represented in the exhibition include Matthew Antezzo, Jed Bark, Chris Burden, Leon Golub and Nancy Spiro, Thomas Lawson, and Jeffrey Lew.
