Catching the Spirit traces the six decades of work of this fundamental artist in the history of modern photography, 'one ahead of her time,' as her friend the photographer Dorothea Lange evoked, and whose work, surprisingly, is still little known. Consuelo Kanaga. Catching the Spirit traces the six decades of work of this fundamental artist in the history of modern photography, 'one ahead of her time,' as her friend the photographer Dorothea Lange evoked, and whose work, surprisingly, is still little known. An unconventional figure, deeply committed to social justice, Kanaga, became a professional photojournalist as early as the 1910s. The exhibition, organized from the collection of the Brooklyn Museum, which preserves her archive, features nearly 180 photographs (mostly vintage prints) and a variety of documentary material. It traces and contextualizes Kanaga's work and presents some of his iconic images. Curator: Drew Sawyer Exhibition organized by the Brooklyn Museum in New York in collaboration with Fundación MAPFRE and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. DAVID GOLDBLATT. NO SECONDARY INTENTION The artistic career of South African David Goldblatt (1930, Randfontein- 2018, Johannesburg) covered both a wide geographical extension of his country and a great variety of human situations showing the daily life of his fellow citizens during and after apartheid. Goldblatt photographed with great objectivity policemen, dissidents, settlers and victims of that regime, the cities in which they lived, their buildings, the interior of their homes... His images form a broad and emotional visual record of the racist apartheid regime, a record that never explicitly shows its violence but clearly shows all that it represented. Commissioners: Judy Ditner, Leslie M. Wilson and Matthew S. Witkovsky Exhibition co-organized by The Art Institute of Chicago and the Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, in collaboration with Fundación MAPFRE, Madrid. The exhibition tour and accompanying publication were made possible by Jane P. Watkins. Photo credits: Consuelo Kanaga.
