SANDRA KANTANEN: CONVERGENCES; SELECTED PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE PERMANENT COLLECTION, GETTY CENTER, LOS ANGELES. 8 JULY - 19 OCTOBER 2014

Finnish artist Sandra Kantanen included in 'Convergences; Selected Photographs from the Permanent Collection' held at the Getty Centre, LA from 8 July - 19 October 2014.

"Juxtaposing contemporary and historical photographs from the permanent collection, the exhibition proposes points of intersection between works created in response to shifting technical developments and aesthetic concerns. Whether related by direct influence or visual affinities of a more tenuous nature, groupings of images reveal the rich diversity of photographic approaches to subjects that have engaged photographers for the past century."

Sandra Kantanen will exhibit alongside works by Vera Lutter, Loretta Lux, Scott McFarland, Yasumasa Morimura, Cindy Sherman, and James Welling, among others.
