About

Garry Winogrand: Color is the first-ever exhibition dedicated to the nearly forgotten color photographs of Garry Winogrand (1928–1984), one of the most influential photographers of the twentieth century. The presentation will feature an installation of slide shows comprising more than 400 rarely or neverbefore-seen photographs that demonstrate the artist’s commitment to and experiments with color. Though primarily known for his black-and-white images that pioneered a “snapshot aesthetic” in contemporary art, Winogrand also produced more than 45,000 color slides between the early 1950s and late 1960s. In 1967 he included a projection of 80 color transparencies in the landmark exhibition New Documents at the Museum of Modern Art, though the installation was removed after the projector malfunctioned and little is known about its content. The exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum includes rotating projections of the lush color photographs Winogrand took of New York City and elsewhere in the United States during the 1950s and 1960s. By presenting this group of largely unknown color work, the exhibition sheds new light on the development of color photography before 1970.
