Minneapolis Institute of Arts Examining Role of Photography within Sports Culture

The Minneapolis Institute of Arts is the first major art museum to trace the rise of a global sports culture dating from the late 19th century to the present. “The Sports Show” will demonstrate how photography itself spurred this expansion. Opening February 19, 2012, “The Sports Show” will comprise photographs by Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon, Andreas Gursky, Alexander Rodchenko, Wolfgang Tillmans, and Andy Warhol, among other innovative photographers and filmmakers. I am thrilled to be included in such a fine looking roster. So happy that the curator of this exhibition happened to walk into Yancey Richardson Gallery while my show was up and pulled three works of mine for it.
