The Polaroid Project: Instantly fun. Forever iconic.
Recently named a notable opening by the New York Times, The Polaroid Project: At the Intersection of Art and Technology is on view at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art starting on June 3, 2017. (Also appearing at museums in Singapore, Berlin, Vienna, Hamburg, Montreal, and MIT Boston)
The richly designed catalogue provides a unique perspective on the Polaroid phenomenon—a technology, an art form, a convergence of both—and its enduring cultural legacy. Through the corporation’s own artist support program, which provided many with materials, Polaroid helped shape the artistic landscape of the late twentieth century.
The Polaroid Project showcases not only the myriad and often idiosyncratic approaches taken by such photographers as Dennis Hopper, Robert Mapplethorpe, Ellen Carey, Andrea Wolff, Ansel Adams, Chuck Close, and many more, but also presents a fascinating selection of the technical objects and artifacts that speak to the sheer ingenuity that lay behind the art.
