Lehigh Valley legendary photographer Judith Joy Ross has work from her 1988 series of portraits taken in the City of Easton on display at the Museum of Modern Art ‘s current exhibition Pictures by Women: A History of Modern Photography. During Sal Panto’s previous term as Mayor, he and sculptor Karl Stirner spearheaded grants for artists to do work in and about the City. One of the images from that body of work, shown here on the cover of Ross’s MOMA book, is included in the exhibit, along with several portraits from her work at the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C., her portraits of Hazleton, Pennsylvania school children, and members and staff of the United States Congress. The exhibit will be on display until March 21, 2011.
I was excited at the prospect of seeing the Cartier-Bresson retrospective and if you can’t make it into MOMA, check out the online catalogue of images by Henri Cartier-Bresson.
The performance artist, Marina Abramovic, has a first-of-its-kind retrospective of a performance artist and is at MOMA everyday from March 14th to May 31st in her piece entitled The Artist is Present.
