"Double Vision: Photographs from the Strauss Collection"
2001-01-30 until 2001-03-11
University Art Museum, CSU Long Beach
Long Beach, CA, USA United States of America

The University Art Museum is pleased to present Double Vision: Photographs from the Strauss Collection, the inaugural exhibition of works from one of the premier assemblages of fine art photographs in America. A remarkable group of rare, vintage, often unique prints by the great masters of 20th-century photography, plus contemporary images by today's most renowned artists, the Strauss Collection is the product of the uncompromising visions of two discriminating collectors.

Ted and Joyce Strauss began building their collection, which presently includes more than 550 photographs, in the early 1970s, a period during which the photographic arts enjoyed a surge of popularity. Founded upon a selection of seminal American works dating from the1920s through the 1960s, the Strauss Collection continues to expand. Ranging from a unique, hand-colored 1936 work by Hans Bellmer, through signature 1960s images by Robert Frank and Garry Winogrand, to 2000 images by Hiroshi Sugimoto and Nicholas Nixon, this exhibition is testament to the breadth of the collection, with 92 works by 71 artists spanning nearly one-hundred years. A variety of styles and techniques are represented, including examples of European Surrealism, the classic American images of mid-century, and the more current expressions of Postmodern issues. The exhibition will travel to the Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego in January, 2002.

Events
In collaboration with the CSULB Art Department Guest Lecture Series, artist Lyle Ashton Harris will discuss his work on Wednesday, March 7th at 5 pm in the University Theater.
