Cleveland Museum of Art Photography Curator Speaks at Hudson Library About Collecting

Wed 5/17 @ 7PM

After 26 years as chief curator at the Akron Art Museum where she built its photography collection into one of the best in the region, Barbara Tannenbaum moved in 2011 to the Cleveland Museum of Art, where she is now curator of photography. Her expertise is wide-ranging and her taste is broad-based, spanning the pioneers of the medium to groundbreaking experimentalists of today.

Tannenbaum will be speaking at the Hudson Library & Historical Society exploring what makes a photograph worth what it is worth and why the prices for some works escalates as it does. According to the event’s promotion, she “will examine how photography’s move into the same marketplace as painting and sculpture has altered our perception of the medium’s dual nature as object and as image and what these changes bode for the future of photography.”
