Starburst: Color Photography in America, 1970-1980
July 10 – September 26, 2010 at the Princeton University Art Museum
“The first historical survey of what critics of the 1970s dubbed “The New Color Photography.” The exhibition focuses on eighteen artists, including William Eggleston, Stephen Shore, and Joel Sternfeld, who embraced color despite, or precisely for, its seeming artlessness. If the duality inherent in black-and-white made it ideal for diagramming intense feelings (hope vs. gloom, righteous vs. evil, ugly vs. beautiful), color’s equanimity gave artists a way to explore the ambivalent mood of a decade trailing the heels of the Sixties: an era of collapsed ideals, disappointed hopes, upended social values, and unsettled sexual politics.”
