Advancing the Moment: Recent Work by California Photographers

Advancing the Moment, organized by the PMCA and held in conjunction with the Norton Simon Museum’s exhibition, The Collectible Moment, reveals the eventual trajectory of the groundbreaking Californian photographers of the 1960s and 1970s by showcasing their work from the last five years. The exhibition includes works produced between 2000 and 2005 by Donald Blumberg, Darryl Curran, Judy Dater, Robbert Flick, Ingeborg Gerdes, Anthony Hernandez, Ellen Land-Weber, Jerry McMillan, Gregory Allen MacGregor, John Spence Weir, and Henry Wessel, Jr. Together with the exhibition at the Norton Simon, Advancing the Moment documents the development of contemporary photography in the context of this region, presenting a pivotal moment when institutions recognized and began collecting photography.

This exhibition was curated by Donna Stein. Support was provided by the Pasadena Arts League.
