Artist News, John Chiara recently acquired for the Harry Ransom Center Photography Collection

Added on by ROSEGALLERY.

Look Inside: New Photography Acquisitions is UT Austin's exhibition of nearly 200 photographs The Harry Ransom Photography Collection recently acquired.  Spanning from post-war to contemporary photography, the collection is renowned and still growing, giving University of Texas Austin students a resourceful reference for their studies.  ROSEGALLERY artist John Chiara is among many to be bought to belong in the permanent collection.

Recent additions have strengthened the collection's holdings of works made during vibrant periods in the medium's artistic evolution, such as the American "photo boom" of the 1960s and 1970s. Look Inside showcases groundbreaking photographs by artists who transformed the medium during that period, including Thomas F. Barrow, Betty Hahn, Kenneth Josephson, Nathan Lyons, Ray K. Metzker and Keith Smith. The exhibition features important works by Lee Friedlander and Robert F. Heinecken, the first by those artists to enter the Center's collection.

Look Inside also highlights contemporary works that function in dialog with the Center's rich historical holdings. Featuring artists who explore and challenge the fundamental materials, processes and questions that occupied the imaginations of photography's inventors, the exhibition includes works by artists Marco Breuer, John Chiara, Chris McCaw, Alison Rossiter and Penelope Umbrico. 

The exhibition will be on view at the Harry Ransom Center 21st and Guadalupe Streets in Austin, Texas from 9 February until 29 May, 2016. For more information please visit their WEBSITE.
