Where We Live: Photographs from the Berman Collection (Press Release)
The Getty presents Where We Live: Photographs from the Berman Collection, at the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Getty Center, October 24, 2006-February 25, 2007. The exhibition showcases the richness of American color photography in nearly 170 works by 24 important contemporary artists, and includes works that will be shown for the first time. Where We Live draws from nearly 500 examples of postwar American photography donated by the Bermans to the Museum over the past eight years. The photographs that the Bermans have donated to the Getty form an archive of late 20th-century American life. The presentation marks the opening of the Getty Museum’s new and expanded suite of galleries devoted to photographs, reflecting the importance of the art form in the Getty’s collection.
