POSTPONED - By nature, photographs are silent images, yet photographers have long conjured sound through depictions of music-making, speaking, listening, and poetic insinuation. The photograph and the phonograph are both products of the 19th century that promised to record the otherwise ephemeral sensory perceptions of sight and sound. Drawn from the Getty’s collection, this exhibition includes works by known and unknown makers from the 19th century to the recent past that record the visual while also suggesting the audible. Curated by Karen Hellman.
