Eastman House Curator Alison Nordstrom on “New Topographics” Exhibition

The greatly anticipated recreation of the landmark 1975 exhibition “NEW TOPOGRAPHICS”  is currently on view at George Eastman House (through September 27th) and will travel to eight additional venues including LACMA (October 25th – January 10th, 2010) and CCP (spring 2010) among others.

From the exhibition’s webpage:

“The exhibition New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-altered Landscape, held in 1975 at George Eastman House, signaled the emergence of a new approach to landscape photography. A new version of this seminal exhibition, organized with the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona, will re-examine more than 100 works from the 1975 show, as well as some 30 prints and books by other relevant artists to provide additional historical and contemporary context. This reconsideration demonstrates both the historical significance of these pictures and their continued relevance today. After its Eastman House display, New Topographics will travel to eight international venues. The new presentation and tour of New Topographics is made possible by a generous grant from the Terra Foundation for American Art.
