The Pictures Generation, 1974 1984 at The METROPOLITAN MUSEUM of

James Kalm anxiously returns to the Metropolitan Museum for the debut of The Pictures Generation. As a young artist he witnessed the rise of this group first hand. Deriving their images from photographic sources, their philosophic underpinnings from the French Deconstructionists and their attitudes towards presentation from commercial and corporate campaigns, the Pictures artists ascended the heights of art world stardom in short order. Their assimilation of the mass media and use of nontraditional means is a prime influence on todays New Media. Featuring excerpts from comments by Douglas Eklund, Associate Curator in the Department of Photographs.
