Art Museum photography exhibit explores theme of survival
Posted October 31, 2000; 10:00 a.m.
An exhibition exploring the relationship between survival and photography, entitled "Surviving the Photograph," is on view at The Art Museum through Nov. 19.
The 39 photographs exhibited address the theme of survival directly through the subject matter -- famine, war, AIDS, or death. They also demonstrate more conceptual manifestations of the theme.
Artists represented in the exhibition include Thomas Barrow, Uta Barth, Gregory Crewdson, Maxime DuCamp, Walker Evans, Roger Fenton, Lee Friedlander, Emmet Gowin, Eikoh Hosoe, Bill Jacobson, Michiko Kon, Richard Misrach, August Sander, Fazal Sheikh, Otto Steinert and Shomei Tomatsu.
The exhibition was organized by Department of Art and Archaeology graduate students Andrew Hershberger and Marta Weiss in conjunction with a conference Oct. 21 and 22 sponsored by the Princeton University Graduate School.
The Art Museum is open to the public without charge. For information, call (609) 258-3788.
