12 Nov-5 Jan. The BOZAR Centre for Fine Arts examines the colourful career of Edward Steichen (1879-1973) who was best known for his groundbreaking photography as well as being a painter, gallery owner and museum curator.
Born in Luxemburg, the infant Steichen moved to New York where he honed his skills in both painting and photography from an early age. His photographic portraits include names such as Greta Garbo, Henri Matisse, Auguste Rodin, Marlène Dietrich and Franklin Roosevelt.
He also served as director of the department of photography at New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) during the post-war years until 1962. The BOZAR exhibition includes works by four laureates of the Edward Steichen Award, a biennial incentive supporting emerging European talents in the field of contemporary art.
