MIAMI.- The Miami Art Museum presents the exhibit Modern Photographs: The Machine, the Body and the City Gifts from the Charles Cowles Collection through April 15, 2007. This exhibition features over two hundred works spanning the breadth of modern photographic history from the collection of Miami-born and New York-based collector, art dealer and former curator Charles Cowles. Guest curator Andy Grundberg, Administrative Chair of Photography at the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, D.C. and former photography critic at The New York Times has selected the 101 photographs that will comprise the gift. This is the largest single donation of artwork in the museum’s 10-year history. For the exhibition, the gift is supplemented by more than 100 loans selected by Charles Cowles from his collection. The loans will be hung salon-style; wall-to-wall and almost floor-to-ceiling, as a documentation of Cowles’ preferred way of experiencing the collection. The presentation of the Cowles gift inaugurates a year-long effort to highlight MAM’s 10 th anniversary as a collecting institution.

The exhibition is organized by Miami Art Museum and guest-curated by former New York Times photography critic Andy Grundberg. The exhibition is supported by MAM’s Annual Exhibition Fund.
