New Winogrand Restrospective 2013-2015
Fantastic to see this news hit my inbox yesterday, that the first retrospective in nearly 25 years of Garry Winogrand’s work will open at SFMOMA on March 9th, 2013. The exhibition will then travel to DC, NYC, Paris & Madrid. Back when this site was active, there was plenty to say about Winogrand, and it’s great to see that there’s been a recent upsurge of interest in his work, and generally, in street photography.
Apparently, the exhibition is partially inspired by new scholarship of Winogrand’s archives:
“New curatorial research undertaken for this project has enabled the first thorough review of the prints and proof sheets from Winogrand’s complete working life, and will reveal to the public for the first time the full breadth of his art through more than 200 photographs. Roughly half of those have never been seen publicly; close to 100 have never before been printed.” from http://www.bloginity.com/2012/04/garry-winogrands-touring-exhibition/
I’m really looking forward to the catalog (and exhibition, if I make it out there) and especially to a new essay on the subject from Mr. Papageorge. Here’s my swing at the subject, “Reconsidering Winogrand” from the inaugural issue of “PUBLICATION” way back in 2009.
Update: NYT has published unseen work from the 1960 DNC, and is asking for help in id’ing some of the people included in the scenes.
