Free and open to the public. Seating is first, come first served. Doors open at 5:00 pm.

“In 1972, self-taught photographer Stephen Shore set out from his native New York City to Amarillo, Texas, on the first of what would become a decade’s worth of road trips across America. Shore’s trademark photographs of middle-American landscapes, interiors, and figures helped establish color photography as an accepted medium in the world of art. At age twenty-three, he was the second living photographer to have a one-man show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Shore has been featured in solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; International Center of Photography, New York; George Eastman House, Rochester; Kunsthalle, Dusseldorf; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Jeu de Paume, Paris; and Art Institute of Chicago. He has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts and, most recently, received a commission from the CCA Wattis Institute of Contemporary Art to document the United States in its current state of economic downturn. Since 1982, he has been the Director of the Photography Program at Bard College in New York State, where he serves as the Susan Weber Professor in the Arts.”

March 1st, San Francisco: “Muybridge and His Legacy” with the exhbition “Helios: Eadweard Muybridge in a Time of Change”

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
Muybridge and His Legacy in conjunction with the exhibition Helios: Eadweard Muybridge in a Time of Change.

TODAY, March 1, 2011 at 12:00 p.m.
Phyllis Wattis Theatre

“Lisa Sutcliffe, assistant curator of photography at SFMOMA, presents three short films inspired by Muybridge and his proto-cinematic work.  Including the dazzling Retrospectroscope by acclaimed local filmmaker, Kerry Laitala, and Hollis Frampton’s lyrical ode to photography and memory, Nostalgia from 1973.

Museum and program admission are free.”

About the Exhibition
“Best known for his revolutionary studies of human and animal locomotion, which evolved into some of the earliest motion pictures, Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904) was also an accomplished landscape photographer, a pioneering documentarian, and a restlessly inventive entrepreneur. This retrospective is the first to examine the full scope of Muybridge’s vision and his pivotal role in the creative transformation of 19th-century culture. The British-born Muybridge began his artistic career in the 1860s in California — then as now a fertile ground for innovation — and his images vividly capture a rapidly changing West. Bringing together hundreds of photographs and other objects made between 1858 and 1893, the exhibition offers a panoramic view of Muybridge’s work within the landscape of his times.”
The exhibition will be open until June 7, 2011.
