Upcoming Exhibitions

November 19, 2016 – March 5, 2017

Two Exhibitions from the Collection of the
Kalamazoo Institute of the Arts, Kalamazoo, Michigan

Sight and Feeling: Photographs by Ansel Adams

Ansel Adams' ability to create photographs with a remarkable range and subtlety of tones is legendary. Yet for all his technical mastery, Adams recognized that what made a compelling photograph was far more elusive. This exhibition of Adams' photographs suggests how his intuitive and emotional response to the landscape resulted in powerful and enduring photographs.

LIGHT WORKS: A Century of Photography

This exhibition spans the history of photography from Eadweard Muybridge's 19th-century photographic studies of animal locomotion to Richard Misrach's contemporary chromogenic prints. Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Curtis, Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon and many other celebrated photographers comprise this survey of photography processes and subjects from 1873 to 2000.
