Light, Paper, Process: Reinventing Photography

Getty Villa Malibu

17985 Pacific Coast Highway, Los Angeles, CA

12:00pm

(JUNE 1) At a time when digital technologies offer increasingly sophisticated options for producing, storing, and disseminating images, a number of artists have turned their attention to exploring the essence of photography, distilling it to its basic components of light-sensitive emulsions and chemical development. These artists may use hand-coated or expired papers, archival negatives, or custom-built cameras, or they may eschew the use of a camera or film altogether. All revel in materials and process, employing darkroom techniques that shift our understanding of photography away from a medium that merely records the world.

The Life of Art: Context, Collecting, and Display

Getty Villa Malibu

17985 Pacific Coast Highway, Los Angeles, CA

12:00pm

From the time an object is made until the day it enters a museum's collection, it may be displayed, used, and perceived in different ways. The Life of Art takes selected objects from the Getty Museum's galleries and encourages visitors to sit down and spend time with them, offering the opportunity to examine them closely to understand how they were made and functioned, why they were collected, and how they have been displayed. Through careful looking, what may be learned about the maker and previous owners of a French gilt-bronze wall light, for example, or the transformation in England of a Chinese porcelain bowl? Close engagement reveals the full lives of these works and why they continue to be collected and cherished today.
