Tate Britain Exhibition dates announced

Tate Britain announces Muybridge Exhibition dates.

This major exhibition is now set to open in September next year. More details in a later post.

From Tate Britain website:

Eadweard Muybridge
15 September 2010  –  16 January 2011

One of photography’s early pioneers, Eadweard Muybridge is be subject of a major retrospective at Tate Britain. Bringing together around 150 works, this exhibition explores how British born Muybridge documented the landscape and people of America when the ‘New World’ was first emerging as a modern country.

Focusing on the period of rapid technological and cultural change from 1870 to 1904, the exhibition will be centred around Muybridge’s celebrated experimental works showing animals and humans in motion. These photographs used new mechanisms that Muybridge invented himself to freeze the image of a galloping horse or a somersaulting acrobat. This revolutionary motion-capture technique produced iconic images that have profoundly influenced generation upon generation of photographers, artists and filmmakers.

Organised by the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington DC
