This exhibition features a selection of approximately thirty photographs acquired by the Dallas Museum of Art in the past five years. Ranging in date from the early 1960s to 2007, the works in the exhibition traverse media from traditional gelatin silver prints to the most recent technologies. Of particular note is a trio of portraits by Gordon Parks as well as large-scale color photographs by Stan Douglas and Ted Kincaid, and a set of widely differing views of the American landscape and people by Bruce Davidson, Bill Owens, Frank Gohlke, and Allison V. Smith. Contemporary Photographs: Recent Acquisitions was organized by the Dallas Museum of Art.
The Dallas Museum of Art is supported in part by the generosity of DMA Partners and donors, the citizens of Dallas through the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, and the Texas Commission on the Arts.
