Rhythmic Vitality: Photographs by Barbara Morgan
East Building, Level B, Julian T. Baker Jr. Photography Gallery; Free
This exhibition features photographs by Barbara Morgan (American, 1900–92) from the NCMA’s permanent collection. Although Morgan, one of the founders of the photography magazine Aperture, is best known for her studies of modern dance, she also created photomontages and light drawings.
Morgan said: “Whether my work is large or small, abstract or realistic, the one thing that must be present is rhythmic vitality...it doesn’t matter if it is dance or montage or people or nature. There always has to be the presence of energy.”
Organized by the North Carolina Museum of Art. This exhibition is made possible, in part, by the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources; the North Carolina Museum of Art Foundation, Inc.; and the William R. Kenan Jr. Endowment for Educational Exhibitions. Research for this exhibition was made possible by Ann and Jim Goodnight/The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Fund for Curatorial and Conservation Research and Travel.
This exhibition is part of the Click! Photography Festival.
