Saturday, October 29, 2016 -- Thursday, December 29, 2016
The American photographer Walker Evans (1903–1975) is among the most influential artists of the 20th century. Covering the full arc of his career, Walker Evans: Depth of Field presents the most comprehensive look at Evans’ work ever mounted in Canada.

Co-organized by the Josef Albers Museum Quaddrat and the High Museum of Art, in collaboration with the Vancouver Art Gallery, the exhibition features more than 180 black and white and colour prints from the 1920s through to the 1970s, including the iconic images Evans made in the American South during the Great Depression—work that played a major role in forging the idiom we now refer to as documentary photography. The exhibition and its companion publication explore the transatlantic roots and repercussions of Evans’ contribution to the field of photography and examine his development of a lyrical documentary style, in which a powerful personal perspective is fused with a rigorously detailed depiction of time and place.
