The Open Road: Photography and the American Road Trip at the Milwaukee Art Museum (January 26 to April 22, 2018) will be the first exhibition to explore the American photographic road trip as a genre in and out of itself.
“We’re excited to bring the work of these eighteen photographers to the Herzfeld Center for Photography and Media Arts,” commented Ariel Pate, assistant curator of photography. “Some will be familiar to our audiences, and some will be new discoveries, but what ties them together is that the car and the American road trip changed the way they took photographs.”
Among the exhibited photographers will be Joel Meyerowitz, whose 1960s and 70s sensorial photographs focused on street life, colour, and caught moments.
