Miami-based collector Martin Z. Margulies has built one of the world’s most significant collections of modern and contemporary art, and over the past two decades he has avidly collected photography that reflects his interest in the human condition. American Scene Photography: Martin Z. Margulies Collection will showcase over 190 photographs from his exceptional archive, dating from the early 1900s to today, by 74 photographers. It will be on view at NSU Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale from November 2, 2014 through March 22, 2015, and is curated by NSU Museum of Art Director and Chief Curator Bonnie Clearwater.
The exhibition traces how Margulies developed a photography collection that reflects the narrative of American history from the early 20th century to the present. Visitors will be invited to consider the past and present of the United States, the beauty and expansiveness of its landscape, and the diversity of its people, cities, streets and homes. The exhibition also explores the important role these photographs played in bringing about social reform, and traces the individual progress of photographers who created some of the most indelible images of America.
