Territories: Photography, Space, and Power explores the myriad ways in which spaces are organized by cultural forces and political power. Visitors will be able to study the ways in which the camera can reveal how humans organize and encode the space they inhabit but also how the camera itself organizes the space into its own logic. Several large format works from The Ringling’s collection, rarely on display, will be on view, such as works by Thomas Struth and Lewis Baltz. Territories will feature a wide assortment of approaches to and uses of photography in apprehending the spaces we inhabit, from military and aerial photography to contemporary fine art practice.
Support for this exhibition was generously provided by the Philip D. and Unni Kaltenbacher endowment and The John and Mable Ringling Museum of At Foundation.
