Photographers James Welling and Walead Beshty both take up the representational field of photography itself as the subject of their works, often producing abstractly beautiful compositions of common objects.

Launched in the late 1960s as one of the Museum’s first public programs, Seminars with Artists is an open forum for conversations with some of the most notable American artsts.
