Eugene Atget: Photographing Paris, 1898-1925 (A, B, C, 1) During his career, Atget photographed the vestiges of old Paris as the city was swiftly being modernized. He captured a broad range of subject matter providing insight into many aspects of daily life. Keywords: photography, street scenes, architecture, modern artistic approaches, documentary photography, nostalgia
Brett Weston: Working Towards Abstraction (1, 2, 3) With a distinctive compositional style, Weston employs high contrast with deep-black shadows to transform negative space into shapes. With a wide range of locations and subjects—from city scenes to explorations of forests and beaches—Weston consistently revealed its potential for abstraction. Selected from the museum’s collection, the photographs in this exhibition represent a broad range of Weston’s work from the 1940s through the 1980s. These photographs along with a short film reveal insight into his artistic process. Keywords: photography, abstract, representation, scenery, exploration, landscape

Ronny Quevedo: at the line (2, 3, 4) Working across printmaking, drawing, and installation, Ronny Quevedo addresses diasporic identities, migration, and transnational connections.

Drawing on the abstract forms and diagrammatic renderings from both sites of play and sacred spaces, Quevedo’s installation will consider how the built environment facilitates communal gathering and congregation.
