Richard Avedon: Evidence 1944-19944
July 9-September 17, 1995
Dayton Hudson GalleryThough Avedon's work is widely acknowledged and has been the subject of six important exhibitions, the complete range of his black-and-white photography has never before been examined in a full-scale museum retrospective. This exhibition reassesses and clarifies the artist's place in the context of the history of photography and conveys the full depth and resonance of Avedon's innovative approach to image making. Included are more than 150 black-and-white images spanning 50 years of Avedon's career. The exhibition opened at the Whitney Museum of American Art and traveled to the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, the Palazzo Reale in Milan, and the National Portrait Gallery in London before coming to The Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
