The Gibbes Museum of Art will present In Body and Soul: The Figure in Modernist Photography from Jan. 22 through April 18. The exhibition comes from the Robert Marks Collection, features photographs from 20th century artists.
The images on display will be photographs that helped reshape how the human body was depicted on film. Some of the included images will be Hands of Georgia O’Keeffe no. 26 by Alfred Stieglitz, Marian Anderson Singing by Alfred Eisenstaedt and Jimmie Daniels, Singer currently at Le Ruban Bleu by George Platt Lynes.
In addition to the exhibition, four events inspired by In Body and Soul will give the public a chance to hear more about specific photographers and their contributions. A lecture on Feb. 17 will go into detail about photographer Margaret Bourke-White and photojournalism, while a March 10 lecture will analyze the queer history of capitalism and interwar fashion through the work of Lynes.
Tickets for In Body and Soul are $12 or less, and can be purchased through the Gibbes’ website. Participants can also register for lectures at gibbesmuseum.com.
