Spotlight On Alec Soth At Minneapolis' Walker Art Center
WHO: Alec Soth
WHAT: From Here to There: Alec Soth's America
WHEN: September 12, 2010 - January 2, 2011
WHERE: Walker Art Center
1750 Hennepin Ave,
Minneapolis, MN, 55403
WHY: Modern and contemporary artists have tried with some frequency to capture a cross-section of America: the essence of the country that pays attention to all the states, personalities, and characters between the coasts.
Within the wanderlust embodied in Alec Soth's photographs is an impulse to uncover narratives that comprise the American experience. From Here to There: Alec Soth's America, organized by the Walker Art Center and premiering in Minneapolis, is the first major U.S. survey to explore the past 15 years of work by one of the most compelling voices in contemporary photography.
