The most comprehensive retrospective of the work of American photographer, filmmaker, and writer #dannylyon in twenty-five years debuts at the Whitney on June 17, 2016. The first major photography exhibition to be presented in the Museum’s downtown home, #dannylyon: Message to the Future is organized by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, where it will make its West Coast debut at the de Young Museum on November 5, 2016. The exhibition assembles approximately 175 photographs and related films, and ephemera and is the first to assess the artist’s achievements as a filmmaker. The presentation also includes many objects that have seldom or never been exhibited before and offers a rare look at works from Lyon’s archives, including vintage prints, unseen 16mm film footage made inside Texas prisons, and his personal photo albums. A leading figure in the American street photography movement of the 1960s, Lyon has distinguished himself by the personal intimacy he establishes with his subjects and the inventiveness of his practice.
Danny Lyon: Message to the Future is organized by Julian Cox, Chief Curator and Founding Curator of Photography, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. The installation at the #whitneymuseum is overseen by Elisabeth Sussman, Curator and Sondra Gilman Curator of Photography. The exhibition is on view at the Whitney from June 17 through September 25, 2016.
