Join us for a preview of Robert Cumming: The Secret Life of Objects. Guest curator Sarah Bay Gachot will give remarks in the Dryden Theatre, and artist Robert Cumming will be present.
Artist Alejandro Cartagena will discuss his work, including the photograph on view in A History of Photography.
With the convenience and ubiquity of computers and smartphones, the majority of photographic images are being recorded digitally rather than on film. As this transformation has broadened access to photographic images—both in making and in viewing—in many contexts it has also obviated the need for photographic prints. Snapshooters, photojournalists, and commercial photographers rarely produce material objects as the final step in their process. As a consequence, photographs in the form of image-bearing sheets of paper are scarce outside of the art world.
