25 years of photography at the National Gallery of Art ...

MIRIAM LEUCHTER, AMERICAN PHOTO:

"Contemporary photography came relatively late to the National Gallery of Art, but its first major exhibition of recent work, The Memory of Time: Contemporary Photographs at the National Gallery of Art, acquired with the Alfred H. Moses and Fern M. Schad Fund, packs a wallop. On view at the Washington, D.C. museum through Sept. 13, 2015, the show is one of several exhibitions and events celebrating the 25th anniversary of the National Gallery’s photography department. It brings together a wealth of photographic works, many of them unique objects, from artists such as Chuck Close, Carrie Mae Weems, Adam Fuss, Sally Mann, Sophie Calle, and Chris McCaw, to name just a few.

"American Photo’s editor-in-chief, Miriam Leuchter, spoke with Sarah Greenough, senior curator and head of the department of photographs at the National Gallery of Art about the show and her institution’s approach to contemporary photography."
