Our 2016 fundraiser will support conservation, preservation and rehousing for two rare photograms by Floris Neusüss (German, b. 1937). The photograms, each of which are over 84 x 41-inches (213 x 106 cm), have been in our collection for many years. The photographs were recently selected for our upcoming exhibition A Matter of Memory: Photography as Object in the Digital Age, which will be on display at the George Eastman Museum from October 22, 2016 thru January 29, 2017. The exhibition, curated by Lisa Hostetler, will be accompanied by a catalog, which also features Neusüss's works.
Each time we reach a $500 goal, our funders will receive a portion of the story about these objects. Currently, those who donate will learn about Lisa's discovery of these works in our vaults and more information about the artist.
