Princeton University Art Museum Presents Starburst: Color Photography in America 1970-1980

The Princeton University Art Museum presents Starburst open July 10, 2010 – September 26, 2010.

Starburst offers the first historical survey of what critics of the 1970s called “the new color photography,” an informal and energetic artistic movement that launched color toward its position of preeminence in contemporary art. The exhibition features generous bodies of work by eighteen artists, from the still-prominent, such as Stephen Shore, William Eggleston, Jan Groover, and Joel Sternfeld, to key figures of the period, including Eve Sonneman, Neal Slavin, John Pfahl, and Barbara Kasten. Organized by the Cincinnati Art Museum.

Presented with the generous support of The Carl Jacobs Foundation, Fund Evaluation Group, and LPK. Further support has been provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Kathleen C. Sherrerd Program Fund for American Art, the Frances E. and Elias Wolf Fund, and the Partners and Friends of the Princeton University Art Museum.
