WORCESTER — This November, the Worcester Art Museum will present “Photo Revolution: Andy Warhol to Cindy Sherman,” a new exhibition that demonstrates photography’s profound influence on contemporary art in the mid- to late-20th century. 

For much of its history, photography — and other photo-based arts such as film and television — were seen by art historians as secondary media, and artists who used them were typically identified by their “primary” medium of painting or sculpture. This persisted into the 1980s, even as photography moved from being a supporting medium to taking a central role. 

Beginning with the rise of Pop art in the late 1950s and, especially after its explosive take-off in the 1960s, it was photo-based media that drove much artistic innovation. Including more than 225 works demonstrating how photography proved foundational to major art movements in the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s, the exhibition will be on view at WAM from Nov. 16 to Feb. 16, 2020.
