About the exhibits:
NANDITA RAMAN: CINEMA PLAY HOUSE: Between 2006 and 2009, Nandita Raman traveled throughout India creating Cinema Play House, a series of photographs depicting the country’s slowly disappearing single-screen theaters. Raman focuses her lens on the architectural anomalies that set these spaces apart from the larger multiplex theaters that currently threaten their existence.
STORIES OF INDIAN CINEMA: ABANDONED AND RESCUED: The George Eastman Museum has recently acquired the world’s largest collection of contemporary Indian cinema held by a museum or film archive. Stories of Indian Cinema will shed light on the intriguing story behind the Eastman Museum’s acquisition of this collection, and will feature a selection of posters and films in the main galleries and at the Dryden Theatre.
A HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPHY: This rotation provides an overview of the history of photography through images that include photographers, photographic apparatus, and/or photographic objects. This installation depicts how photographers have referred to the medium, and to themselves, in their image-making.
LUCINDA DEVLIN: SIGHTLINES: Selections from three series by photographer Lucinda Devlin are featured in this exhibition. Best known for The Omega Suites—precisely composed images of execution chambers in the United States—Devlin has devoted her career to exploring the relationship between our bodies and the spaces that they inhabit.
FROM THE CAMERA OBSCURA TO THE REVOLUTIONARY KODAK: The exhibition features cameras and facsimiles of snapshots and documents from the Eastman Museum collection.
