ST. LOUIS.- The Saint Louis Art Museum announced the opening of Abstraction in American Photography, an exhibition of nine photographs from the Museum's collection by such artists as Aaron Siskind and Minor White that explores the potential for abstraction in photography. The exhibition complements the featured exhibition Action/Abstraction: Pollock, de Kooning and American Art, 1940–1976, on view in the Main Exhibition Galleries October 19, 2008–January 11, 2009.

Created between the early 1940s and the early 1960s, the images in the exhibition highlight a variety of techniques for pursuing abstraction ranging from formal exercises generated in the darkroom to spiritual explorations of the physical world. They were largely produced in association with the influential photography program at the Institute of Design, the graduate school of design at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago.

Curated by Eric Lutz, assistant curator of prints, drawings and photographs, Abstraction in American Photography will be on view in Gallery 321 through December 14, 2008.
