The exhibition will feature approximately 200 photographs, works on paper, paintings, conceptual work, videos, writings and rare archival materials. Several surprising new bodies of work will be seen in relation to classics, such as the photographs of his weimaraners. Trevor Fairbrother, independent curator and scholar, is the guest curator.
"William Wegman—Funney/Strange" was organized by the Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy, Andover, Massachusetts. The Lunder Foundation supports the presentation at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
The exhibition has an accompanying catalogue, "William Wegman—Funney/Strange," by Joan Simon, curator-at-large at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. The book is published by Yale University Press in association with the Addison Gallery.
