American Art in the Machine Age, 1913-1940: Prints, Drawings, and Photographs from the Collection

May 5–August 11, 1996

In the early decades of this century, rapid technological advances were radically changing life in this country. American artists searched for a new identity, a means of expressing their commitment to the modernist movements coming out of Europe in a purely American way. This exhibition traces American responses to the machine age through prints, drawings, and photographs from the permanent collection by such artists as Paul Strand, Edward Weston, Charles Sheeler, John Marin, and Louis Lozowick.
