A Brilliant Spectrum presents, with its 30 works, a select and concise survey of the course of color photography, from its emergence as an accepted artistic tool in the 1960s and 70s, with vivid color photographs by the established artists Evelyn Hofer, Kwame Brathwaite and William Eggleston, up to today’s most conceptually-driven practices, as seen in the seemingly-abstract work of Hannah Karsen and Olaf Breuning.
