TAM: Henry Art Gallery and Tacoma Art Museum Reciprocal Agreement for Paul Strand


Henry Art Gallery and Tacoma Art Museum Reciprocal Agreement from April 21 - May 19, 2007


During the overlap of the Paul Strand photography exhibitions at Tacoma Art Museum and at the Henry, a partnership has been arranged so that Tacoma Art Museum members will get into the Henry for free and vice versa. All you need is your Tacoma Art Museum membership card.

Please also pass on this information to visitors that you meet in the galleries.


Below is information about the Henry's exhibition:


Paul Strand: The Mexican Portfolio  (April 10 — July 1, 2007)
At the intersection of Paul Strand’s photographic and cinematic production lies The Mexican Portfolio. Consisting of twenty images depicting the landscape, people, and architecture he encountered in Mexico in the early 1930s, the Portfolio and its specific sequencing reveal Strand’s attempt to create a film-like narrative with still images. This exhibition explores the juncture of photography and filmmaking in his career, drawing attention to the cinematic qualities of the photographs in the Portfolio.
To complement this exhibition, the Henry will feature Strand’s film, Redes (The Net), which he filmed in Mexico during this period. The film’s carefully composed shots reveal Strand’s foundation in still photography and provide the perfect counterpoint to The Mexican Portfolio.



Thanks for your time!
