The Radical Eye: Modernist Photography from the Sir Elton John Collection
10 November 2016 - 7 May 2017
Tate Modern | London, UK
Drawn from one of the world’s greatest private collections of photography, this major new exhibition will present an unrivalled selection of classic modernist images from the 1920s to the 1950s: the crucial moment in the history of photography often referred to as the 'coming of age' of the medium.
Featuring over 150 works from more than 60 artists, the exhibition will consist entirely of rare vintage prints, all created by the artists themselves. It will showcase works by seminal figures such as Man Ray, André Kertész, Berenice Abbot, Alexandr Rodchenko and Edward Steichen. Among the highlights are an incredible group of Man Ray portraits brought together by Sir Elton John over the past 25 years and exhibited together for the first time.
