Members Tour “David Levinthal: Photographs 1972–2016”
New York-based photographer David Levinthal uses staged photographs of toys and other everyday objects to bring viewers face-to-face with themes central to American history, identity, and consciousness. David Levinthal: Photographs 1972–2016 provides a rich overview of the artist’s work.The images range from intimately scaled prints, to large 20-by-24-inch Polaroids, to monumental inkjet prints. Evoking the visual language of photojournalism, pornography, television, film, and religious art, the photographs elicit a response not to the actual moment or event or object, but to the place it holds in a collective American consciousness.
Museum members are invited to reserve a spot for this one-hour tour to explore the exhibition together with a docent of the MFAH.
