First U.S. Exhibition of Cyanotype to Be Held at Worcester Art Museum

Wednesday, September 16, 2015

 

From January 16 to April 24, 2016, the Worcester Art Museum (WAM) will host Photography's Blue Period - the first major U.S. exhibition to trace the historical trajectory of the cyanotype. 

"We are thrilled to collaborate with Clark University on this unprecedented investigation into the rich history of the cyanotype,” said exhibition co-curator and WAM’s Assistant Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs, Nancy Burns. “Through this exhibition, we hope to place a much-deserved spotlight on the medium, which in many ways was a predecessor to the Polaroid for its speed and portability. The range of images on view showcases how the cyanotype was first embraced by the general public before experiencing a renaissance brought on by fine artists of the late 20th century who used the process to produce unique effects.”

According to WAM, the exhibit is "a sweeping survey of the medium’s evolution, from its rise as a popular photographic tool in the late 19th and early 20th centuries through its revitalization by contemporary artists."

Historic works by renowned photographers such as Anna Atkins, Henry Bosse, and Arthur Wesley Dow, will be presented alongside contemporary examples by artists including Christian Marclay, Annie Lopez, and Hugh Scott-Douglas, among others. A

Cyanotype: Photography’s Blue Period is being organized in partnership with Kristina Wilson, exhibition co-curator and Clark University associate professor in the Department of Visual and Performing Arts.
