SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES • MCASD La Jolla • 24 September 2016 - 2 January 2017
|Tracing a crucial history of photoconceptual practice,The Uses of Photography focuses on an artistic community that formed in and around the University of California San Diego, founded in 1960, and its visual arts department, founded in 1967. Artists such as Eleanor Antin, Allan Kaprow, Fred Lonidier, Martha Rosler, Allan Sekula, and Carrie Mae Weems, to name a few, employed photography and its expanded forms as a means to dismantle modernist autonomy, to contest notions of photographic truth, and to engage in political critique.|
