In-Person Exhibition Tour: White Shadows: Anneliese Hager and the Camera-less Photograph
Join curator Lynette Roth and conservator Penley Knipe for an in-depth tour of our special exhibition White Shadows: Anneliese Hager and the Camera-less Photograph, on view through July 31, 2022.
Anneliese Hager (1904–1997) made significant contributions to the medium of camera-less photography and to the wider surrealist movement in Europe. The camera-less photograph, or photogram, is an image made by placing objects directly on (or in close proximity to) a light-sensitive surface and then exposing the assembled material to light. The first exhibition to focus on the role of women makers in the history of the photogram, White Shadows showcases 29 recently acquired photograms made by the artist between the late 1940s and 1960s, as well as a variety of light-based works by Hager’s predecessors and contemporaries.
