Ansel Adams In Our Time With Karen Haas, Curator (Meet At 10:15 AM)
Friday, February 15, 2019, 10:30 AM until 11:30 AM
Museum of Fine Arts
465 Huntington Ave
“Ansel Adams in Our Time” traces the visual legacy of Ansel Adams, presenting some of his most iconic prints, from a symphonic view of snow-dusted peaks in The Tetons and Snake River, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming (1942) to an aerial shot of a knotted roadway in Freeway Interchange, Los Angeles (1967). The exhibition places Adams in context, displaying his images alongside prints by 19th-century government survey photographers who greatly influenced him, as well as the work of contemporary artists whose modern-day concerns -- the environment, land rights, and the use and misuse of natural resources -- point directly to Adams’s legacy. Lane Curator of Photographs Karen Haas, the exhibition’s curator will be our host on this private BHV tour. Haas will explain her curatorial process, providing insight into the powerful themes the show evokes. Thanks to the generosity of one of our members, there are 20 complimentary passes available to BHV members for this event. Registrations will be first come, first served. Space limited. Meet at the Huntington Ave. entrance promptly at 10:15 a.m. BHV members only. Free.
