As the Tampa Museum of Art nears its 100th anniversary, exhibitions in 2019 and 2020 will focus on the breadth of the institution’s permanent collection, as well as examine its collecting history. The Tampa Museum of Art’s holdings are unique, with distinct collections of Greek and Roman antiquities, as well as modern and contemporary art.

Tableau and Transformation: Photography from the Permanent Collection explores the Tampa Museum of Art’s holdings of 20th-century photography. The exhibition highlights explorations in photography through darkroom effects, distinct studio practices, and unique compositions in the work of photographers such as Zeke Berman, Chuck Close, and Lucas Samaras. Artists such as James Casebere, Robert Cumming, and Stephen Frailey create constructed environments, often blurring the boundaries of truth and fiction in their images. Several artists in Tableau and Transformation, including Eileen Cowin, Victor Burgin, and Cindy Sherman, reference art history as a means to explore identity, gender, and visual culture.

This exhibition features work by John Baldessari, Zeke Berman, Victor Burgin, James Casebere, Chuck Close, Eileen Cowin, Robert Cumming, Stephen Frailey, Duane Michals, Lucas Samaras, Cindy Sherman, William Wegman, and others.
