The Baltimore Museum of Art is home to the renowned Cone Collection, and its permanent collection also includes American Painting and Decorative Arts, European Painting and Sculpture, Arts of Africa, Asia, the Americas and Oceania, Modern and Contemporary Art, Prints, Drawings and Photographs and a stunning sculpture garden. The museum also hosts several special exhibitions, which rotate throughout the year.
Consisting of over 200 photographs from more than 60 remarkable photographers, Seeing Now examines pressing subjects through single images and works presented in series as well as film and video. The exhibition features photographs from artists like Dian Arbus, Larry Clark, William Eggelson, and Cindy Sherman as well as lesser-known talents.
Showcasing the BMA's photography collection but also incorporating video and film, this exhibition presents an array of impressive work by modern photographers, such as Helmut Newton's characteristically provocative "Lisa in Saint Tropez" and Mickalene Thomas' "Le dejeuner sur l'herbe: les trois femmes noires," a recent acquisition. Also represented are the works of artists who really should need no introduction at all: so-called freak photographer Diane Arbus, mid-20th-century street photographer Gary Winogrand, and MacArthur Fellowship recipient Cindy Sherman.
