CIMA Members Visit to the Met’s Paradise of Exiles

10 July 2017 / 12:00 am - 12:00 am

CIMA MEMBERS ONLY! Join us on July 10 for a private visit to the exhibition, Paradise of Exiles: Early Photography in Italy, currently on view at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, led by Beth Saunders, a curatorial assistant at The Met and curator of the exhibition. Presenting works from the years 1839-1871, this exhibition centers on Italy’s crucial role in the experimentation and invention of photography. In line with CIMA’s own mission to develop underrepresented narratives, Paradise of Exiles illuminates Italy’s lesser-known contributions  to the art form. The exhibition will include works from The Met’s collection as well as a number of rare works from the period of Italian Unification (or the Risorgimento).

Want to learn more about photography in Italy? Check out the talk Lindsay Harris gave at CIMA in 2015 on Medardo Rosso and Photography in Turn-of-the-Century Italy!

Members will receive a private invitation link.
