Mapping Space: Recent Acquisitions in Focus


The Getty Center

This is a past event

A display of photographs from the Museum’s collection that explore the work of artists who have departed from the traditional rules of landscape composition to document specific geographic locations in new ways. Uta Barth, Robert Kinmont, Richard Long, Mark Ruwedel, and Wang Jinsong use photography to describe natural and built environments through unspecified modes of measurement and intuitive use of perspective. Influenced by the legacy of Conceptualism, a movement that gained popularity in the 1960s, these works emphasize each maker’s personal relationships with the chosen sites.
