Since the birth of photography in 1839, artists have used the medium to explore subjects close to home -- the quotidian, intimate, and overlooked aspects of everyday existence. This exhibition examines the photographs and videos made by a wide range of artists during the last four decades. Featuring forty works from the Museum's collection, it includes photographs by John Baldessari, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Fischli & Weiss, Jan Groover, Robert Gober, Nan Goldin, Elizabeth McAlpine, Gabriel Orozco, David Salle, Robert Smithson, Stephen Shore, and William Wegman among others, as well as video by artists such as Martha Rosler, Ilene Segalove, and Svetlana and Igor Kopystiansky.
Venue Description: Sun.-Thurs., 10am-5:30pm; Fri.-Sat., 10am-9pm. Recommended admission: $25.
