Moving Images: Works from the Permanent Collection of Photography and Video Art

September 3–December 12, 2010

This installation of photographs and single-channel video works is offered in conjunction with fall courses in both Film and Media Culture and the History of Art and Architecture. The exhibition includes works by pioneers of time-lapse photography Eadweard Muybridge and Harold Edgerton, whose images capture bodies in motion, and more recent artists like Hiroshi Sugimoto, who uses extremely long exposure times to create visions of stillness. The exhibit also includes video works by Tracey Moffatt, Peter Campus, and the Swiss team of Peter Fischli and David Weiss.
