Narrative Interventions in Photography

At the J. Paul Getty Museum, Getty Center
October 25, 2011–March 11, 2012

Featuring contemporary artists Eileen Cowin (American, born 1947), Carrie Mae Weems (American, born 1953), and Simryn Gill (Singaporean, born 1959), this exhibition explores the concept of storytelling through three distinct bodies of photographic works. Cowin’s images present a philosophical questioning of narrative and what is fact or fiction; Weems’s art attempts to rewrite a profound aspect of human history; while photographs by Gill reflect a more personal interaction with stories through deconstructed books. Although each artist has a different approach, all are concerned with photography and the notion of narrative: implied, real, or revised.
