“This exhibition addresses photography’s influential role in contemporary art through a selection of recent major acquisitions, primarily multipart and serial works. Presented at MoMA for the first time, these works by 19 artists are grounded in diverse photographic traditions, suggesting the creative fertility of the medium from 1960 to today. They range from postwar experiments with darkroom processes (such as photograms and photomontages), to 1970s feminist performances conceived for the camera, to political and documentary engagements with labor history and globalization in the 1980s and 1990s, to forms of archival and historical reconstitution made since 2000. The international, cross-generational group of artists includes Yto Barrada, Phil Collins,* Liz Deschenes, Stan Douglas,* VALIE EXPORT, Robert Frank, Paul Graham, Leslie Hewitt,* Birgit Jürgenssen, Jürgen Klauke, Běla Kolářová, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Dóra Maurer, Oscar Muñoz, Mariah Robertson, Allan Sekula, Stephen Shore, Taryn Simon,* and Hank Willis Thomas.*
*Works by these artists will be on view beginning August 23, 2013.
Galleries 1–4 open May 10; gallery 5 opens August 23.”
“En Foco’s Touring Gallery Community Exhibitions presents photographs from Pete Pin’s Cambodian Diaspora series.
Born in a Cambodian refugee camp where both parents worked in labor camps, Pin immigrated to the U.S. in 1983. Drawing from the experiences of his family as survivors of the Khmer Rouge regime (1975-1979), Pin photographs Cambodian communities throughout the United States. He documents the struggle and pain of the survivors and the direct descendants of the genocide that took millions of lives. The series is a testament to those who died, and an examination of where future generations are now. In an attempt to understand his heritage, Pin pays tribute to the lives of the survivors.
Pin states, “I have struggled for most of my life to understand the legacy of my people. They are among the most heavily traumatized people in modern memory, the human aftermath of a cultural, political, and economic revolution that killed an estimated two million, nearly a third of the entire population, within a span of four years. That tragedy casts a long shadow on the lives of Cambodians that bleeds generationally, manifesting itself across generations.”
Te exhibition will be up until July 19, 2013.

Parr has been photographing beaches for thirty years, documenting all aspects of them, including close-ups of sunbathers, rambunctious swimmers caught mid-plunge, and the eternal sandy picnic underway. This selection brings to the fore Parr’s engagement with a cherished subject matter—that rare public space in which general absurdities and local quirks seamlessly fuse together.”
