CONVERGENCES: SELECTED PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE PERMANENT COLLECTION

July 8 - October 19, 2014

The J. Paul Getty Museum

1200 Getty Center Drive

Los Angeles, CA

The title of the exhibition is inspired by Lawrence Weschler's collection of essays Everything that Rises: A Book of Convergences (2006).

The exhibition juxtaposes contemporary and historical photographs from the permanent collection to reveal points of intersection between works that have been created in response to persistent historical, technical, or aesthetic concerns.

Mariana Cook's photographs Barbara's Pears (West Tisbury, Massachusetts) and White Peach (Basel, Switzerland) will be grouped with works by Laura Letinsky and Man Ray.
