The Open Road: Photography and the American Road Trip at the Milwaukee Art Museum will be the first exhibition to explore the American photographic road trip as a genre in and out of itself.
The photographs featured show America’s changing landscape from its highways and byways and show the evolution of American car culture and reflect the artists’ explorations of place, time, and self, including Joel Sternfeld’s seminal colour work from his series American Prospects. Sternfeld’s series has become one of the most important examples of contemporary American documentary.
The Open Road: Photography and the American Road Trip, 26 January – 22 April 2018 at Milwaukee Art Museum.
