One Hundred Years Ago: George Eastman in 1923

Historic Mansion

This annual display in the historic mansion provides a glimpse of George Eastman’s life and work one hundred years ago. The new selection of objects highlights the goings on in 1923—most notably the release of the Ciné-Kodak and 16mm motion picture film and a 10-week expedition in the Cassiar region of Alaska and British Columbia, which became his favorite camping destination for the remainder of his life.

Marcia Resnick: As It Is or Could Be

Main Galleries
Marcia Resnick was one of the most ambitious and innovative American photographers of the 1970s. Combining social critique with poignant, often humorous performance, her photographs explore—in a conceptual vernacular—aesthetic, social, and political issues at once timely and timeless. This exhibition brings together for the first time her extraordinary photographs from this period.

Selections from the Collection

Collection Gallery

For this nineteenth rotation, Stephanie Hofner, collection manager in the Department of Photography, worked with her four-year-old daughter Sawyer to select objects. While previous displays have been thematic, we will be sharing a wider variety of objects in the rotations going forward, while still highlighting the breadth and depth of the museum’s photograph holdings. An emphasis on family-friendly content can also be found thanks to Stephanie and Sawyer’s collaboration.

Adam Ekberg: Minor Spectacles

Project Gallery

Loneliness permeates Adam Ekberg’s whimsical photographs that document the climax of orchestrated events. While the camera freezes them into still lifes, a sense of continuity—like the arc of a story—happens as one realizes that Ekberg (American, b. 1975) invented, manifested, documented, and concluded these events. The objects take on lives of their own, even though we know that such agency is impossible.

The Duchess of Buffalo

Dryden Theatre

Silent Tuesdays Of the famous Talmadge sisters, Norma Talmadge was the drama queen and Constance Talmadge the comedienne. (The youngest, Natalie, was Buster Keaton’s first wife and love interest in his Our Hospitality.) Constance’s talents emerged playing the spunky Mountain Girl in D. W. Griffith’s Intolerance (1916) and quirky romantic comedies showed her innate wit and vivacity best, often directed by Sidney Franklin (later famous for The Barretts of Wimpole Street and The Good Earth).
