PHOTOGRAPHY AND BEYOND: NEW EXPRESSIONS IN FRANCE

September 23, 1995 - October 15, 1995
CCS Bard Galleries

This exhibition featured seven contemporary French artists–David Boeno, Christian Boltanski, Arièle Bonzon, Sophie Calle, Pascal Kern, Suzanne Lafont, and Annette Messager–whose works reflected an expansion of the expressive possibilities of photography and its role in relation to other art forms. In the seventies, painters and sculptors began using the medium of photography to enlarge their realm of artistic expression. At the same time, photographers started incorporating new materials into their work. As a result of this experimentation, the traditional role of photography was transformed. This exhibition, curated by Timothy A. Eaton and Nissan N. Perez, was organized by the Boca Raton Museum of Art and The Israel Museum.
