YouTube Video Premiere
The Saul and Harriet M. Rothkopf Media Program
Join us for a conversation between Senior Curator Mason Klein and exhibition designer Leslie Gill exploring the creative process behind Modern Look: Photography and the American Magazine. Featuring over 150 works including photographs, layouts, and cover designs, the exhibition considers the connections and influences of designers and photographers – including Gill’s own parents, Frances McLaughlin-Gill Leslie Gill. The unmistakable aesthetic made popular by such magazines as Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue — whose art directors, Alexey Brodovitch and Alexander Liberman, were both immigrants and accomplished photographers — emerged from a distinctly American combination of innovation, inclusiveness, and pragmatism.
This program has been funded by a generous donation endowment from the Saul and Harriet M. Rothkopf Family Foundation
