Mark Schwartz and Bettina Katz Photography Galleries
This exhibition, comprised primarily of work from the museum’s collection, examines some of the ways photography has been used to construct identities, whether fact or fiction. Many of the works will be recent acquisitions, including Patrick Nagatani’s 50-part visual saga detailing the scientist Ryoichi’s adventures leading an archeaological expeditionary force that discovers evidence of time travel; Andy Warhol’s Little Red Notebook with Polaroids of Mick Jagger posturing as a louche sex object; and Henri Cartier-Bresson’s glimpses into the family life of Robert F. Kennedy.
The Cleveland Museum of Art is supported in part by Cuyahoga County residents through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture. The Ohio Arts Council helped fund this exhibition with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence, and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.
