The Amazing and The Immutable

About the Exhibition


Sep 9 – Nov 21, 2004


The Tufts Art Gallery is proud to host The Amazing and The Immutable, an exhibition of works selected from the collections of distinguished Florida collectors Robert Drapkin and Martin Margulies. This visually provocative exhibition combines and contrasts late 19th-century vintage photographs and late 20th-century photo-based contemporary art. The unconventional pairings of images from different centuries promote “visual thinking” by prompting viewers to think about the meanings of the unusual groupings. Every major photographic printing process is represented in the exhibition of 106 works, making The Amazing and The Immutable an amazing resource for learning about the evolution of the photographic medium and the crises it has faced since its invention in 1839.
