Emanuel von Baeyer Cabinet presents its new exhibition, ‘Architecture, Sculpture & Performance: American Modernist Photos’.
Spanning 1946 – 1976, a selection of American Modernist photographs captures significant 20th century artists and their work. The exhibition begins with Pedro E Guerrero’s photos of Frank Lloyd Wright and his famous buildings, both interiors and exteriors. Guerrero had exclusive access to Wright as his personal photographer for the last 20 years of his life. One depiction of the fastidious architect at work shows the construction of his desert home, Taliesen West, with Wright in a three piece suit. Through acquaintance with Wright, Guerrero met and made portraits of Alexander Calder, who can be seen at home in Roxbury, Connecticut with wife Louisa and grandson Holton Rower in 1963. Another grandson of Calder, Alexander S.C. Rower, said ‘Guerrero’s photographs accurately show how my grandparents lived, with simplicity and humanity.’
Finally, Peter J. Moore documented performance art in New York throughout the 1960s, and here we present his pictures of the temporal work of Jim Dine, Robert Morris and Robert Whitman. EMANUEL VON BAEYER CABINET
