SUMMER 2018-2019 WASHINGTON DC:
“Daguerreotypes: Five Decades of Collecting” at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.
June 15, 2018–June 2, 2019 Daguerreotypes were the precursor modern-day photography. The process, which was ubiquitous in the mid-19th century, involved exposing a treated silver plate to light through an early camera. In 2018, the National Portrait Gallery will have been collecting daguerreotypes for 50 years and has planned a large installation to commemorate the milestone. These aren’t just fascinating artworks; they’re also stunning chronicles of the birth of modernism.
