CCS Bard Presents "Picture Industry" at Hessel Museum of Art

Picture Industry, Curated by Walead Beshty On View June 24 - December 15, 2017

With works by over 80 artists (ranging from historical documents to major installations), Picture Industry reflects upon transformations in the production and distribution of photographic images as realized through its varied constructions of the corporeal, from its origin as scientific tool and a means of cultural investigation to its phenomenological effects on a viewer.

The exhibition encompasses a broad range of photographic practices from the late 19th century to the present.
