The exhibition will be held on the third floor of The Robert and Joyce Menshcel Gallery at the museum and has been expanded to include six artists instead of the usual four. The artists include Moyra Davey, George Georgiou, Deana Lawson, Doug Rickard, Viviane Sassen, and Zhang Dali.
Dan Leers, MoMA curatorial fellow, is the exhibition organizer. “Whether using analog forms of communication like Moyra Davey, the documentary approach of George Georgiou, conventions of portraiture like Deana Lawson, web-based images like Doug Rickard, Viviane Sassen’s self-reflective analysis, or an appropriative practice like Zhang Dali, each of the artists in New Photography 2011 has his or her own individual mans of addressing issues relevant to the world today,” said Leers in a MoMA statement (pdf).
This year’s show is focusing on emerging contemporary photographers. New Photography 2011 is being sponsored by the Carl Jacobs Foundation. Information on museum hours can be found here.
