Open City: Street Photographs Since 1950

June 20, 2002 – September 8, 2002

Museum: Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden

Location: Level 2

Charting the development of the street photograph from 1950 to the present day, this exhibition includes more than 130 photographs by 19 international artists. Its starting point is the raw and edgy photographs produced by a generation of photographers in the 1950s and 1960s who developed a radical, new approach to documentary photography. For these and subsequent artists, the street fascinates as a theater of human activity.

This exhibition was organized by the Museum of Modern Art, Oxford, and the Hirshhorn is the final venue for this show.
