Weegee - Innocence and Experience: Childhood in Art

Innocence and Experience: Childhood in Art
June 19 - August 9, 2015

Curated by Stephen Margulies, Volunteer Curator

Does knowing the truth of childhood bring us closer to the truth of human nature? Is childhood a separate universe—or merely adulthood in miniature? Throughout history, notions of childhood have vacillated between the idea that childhood is a wonderful world alien to grownups and the idea that childhood is at best an embarrassing prelude to the real world of maturity.

Sol LeWitt (1928–2007) is widely recognized as one of the most influential artists of the last half-century. The exhibition Collection: Sol LeWitt and Photography will feature the photographic work of LeWitt as well as pieces by other artists that relate to LeWitt’s conceptual practice. All works are drawn from LeWitt’s personal collection, and offers the public a rare opportunity to focus on the artist’s investigations with photography.
