Two neighboring Kansas City museums are each offering major photography shows this spring focusing on American culture and landscape. Kemper Museum curator Christopher Cook and Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art photography curator Keith Davis discuss photographers Art Sinsabaugh and Stephen Shore and where the subject of their work intersects.
Kansas City, MO – American Horizons: The Photographs of Art Sinsabaugh, on view through April 6 at the Nelson-Atkins, and Biographical Landscape: The Photography of Stephen Shore, 1969-1979, at the Kemper Museum through May 18.
MUSIC: "Symmetry" (2007), by Kansas City group Monta at Odds. In a recent exhibition at Review Studios, artist Jorge Garcia Almodovar's wall piece called "Untitled (Symmetry)" (2007) used a sound-activated electronic color organ, which translated this song.
