"The Idea of Louis Sullivan"
2001-06-09 until 2001-09-23
Art Institute of Chicago
Chicago, IL, USA

In 1956, photographer John Szarkowski published a book documenting the architecture of Louis Sullivan. This work not only spurred new interest in Sullivan's career among architects and architectural historians, but also illustrated an aesthetic that was to have enormous influence on the history of photography when Szarkowski became the curator of photography at New York's Museum of Modern Art in the early 1960s. This year, The Idea of Louis Sullivan is being republished, and to mark the occasion, the Art Institute's Department of PhotographyŚwith the collaboration of the Department of ArchitectureŚwill mount an exhibition that will combine vintage prints from Szarkowski's classic study with Sullivan's own drawings and architectural fragments drawn from the collection of the Department of Architecture.
