David Levinthal: War, Myth, Desire is the first museum retrospective of the artist’s work in more than twenty years. The exhibition will include nearly 200 prints, along with related books and ephemera, giving visitors a unique opportunity to consider Levinthal’s most recent work alongside key works from the full scope of his career.
Since the mid-1970s, David Levinthal has been exploring the relationship between photographic imagery and the fantasies, myths, events, and characters that shape contemporary America’s mental landscape. The exhibition will include photographs from all of his major series to date—the best-known of which include Hitler Moves East (1972–75), Modern Romance (1983–85), The Wild West (1986–89), Desire (1991–92), Blackface (1995–98), Barbie (1997–98), Baseball (1998–2004), and History (2010–15)—in addition to never-before-exhibited outtakes, commissions, and archival materials.
Visitors are welcome to explore the Eastman Museum on their own. Self-guided audio tours—accessible from visitors' own cell phones—are available in the historic mansion (narrated by Oscar-nominated actor Robert Forster) and in select rotating exhibitions. Look for the cell phone symbol and stop numbers.
The tour can be accessed by calling (585) 563-3496 (Carrier charges may apply) or by visiting eastman.oncell.com on your mobile device's web browser.
