This Terra Foundation-supported exhibition will be the first comprehensive presentation of the work of Paul Strand (1890–1976) since 1971, emphasizing the most important projects he undertook in every decade from the 1910s through the 1960s. Challenging the prevailing view that Strand’s later work remained relatively static over the course of several decades, this show will make the case that he radically changed his work at several important junctures. The exhibition will include approximately 220 of the artist’s prints and three films, drawn mainly from the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s holdings, with an additional loan of 20–30 key early works from American and European public and private collections. Also featured will be select works by Strand’s contemporaries, including Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O’Keeffe, Rebecca Strand, John Marin, Arthur Dove, and Marsden Hartley.
The exhibition will travel to the Fotomuseum Wintherthur (February–May 2015), Fundación Mapfre (Summer 2015), and Victoria and Albert Museum (Spring 2016).
