Terraforming: Olana’s Historic Photography Collection Unearthed

Join us for a guided exploration of the interior and exterior components of this season’s special exhibition.  Inspired by Olana’s significant rarely-seen collection of nearly 5,000 19th century international photographic prints, artist and guest curator David Hartt reflects on the ways in which human culture and activity shape the land. Through Hartt’s selection of historic photographs from Olana’s vast collection, the exhibition also explores what this global photographic collection tells us about Church’s painting practice, travels, and ways of knowing and collecting the world.

Terraforming includes historically significant works by photographers including Eadweard Muybridge, William James Stillman, and Claude-Joseph Désiré Charnay, as well as new site-specific work by David Hartt.

Admission to Terraforming requires a paid ticket. This tour requires several flights of stairs and is not-ADA accessible.
