KANSAS CITY, MO.- The exhibition The Poetics of Space is on view April 10, 2009–March 14, 2010, at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art. Through photographs by William Christenberry, Lynn Davis, Walker Evans, Todd Hido, Anthony Lepore, and Mike Sinclair, among others, the exhibition reveals the mysterious and poetic worlds dwelling within domestic, urban, and natural spaces. The exhibition includes more than 20 photographs by 17 artists from the Kemper Museum’s permanent collection.

Inspired by French philosopher Gaston Bachelard’s 1958 book La poétique de l’espace (The Poetics of Space), this exhibition features photographs that focus on the spatial dynamics of our architectural and natural surroundings. Some photographs, like Lynn Davis’s dramatic images of mountainous icebergs and dessert landscapes, illustrate the inspiring phenomenon of the natural world. And, the mysterious lives of interior spaces can be found in photographs by Julie Blackmon, William Clift, and Michael Eastman.

Exhibition Artists: Julie Blackmon, William Christenberry, William Clift, Lynn Davis, Terry Evans, Walker Evans, Michael Eastman, Todd Hido, Richard Hodgman, Anthony Lepore, Joel Meyerowitz, Neeta Madahar, Nicholas Prior, Milton Rogovin, Mike Sinclair, Aaron Siskind, and Paul Strand
