Jessica Lange: unseen

Jessica Lange has maintained a career as a fine art photographer for nearly two decades, alongside her work as an acclaimed actress. As a photographer, Lange documents diverse cultures from regional and international travels. Alternately comforting and disquieting, the artist’s striking and unexpected photographs possess a kind of moody mystery that is appropriately cinematic. MOPA is pleased to present the first United States exhibition of Jessica Lange’s mid-career retrospective unseen. The exhibition gathers work from Mexico, Ethiopia, Romania, Russia, Finland, Italy, France and the United States.

30x: three decades

In 2013, MOPA celebrates 30 years as a museum in Balboa Park dedicated to exhibiting photography, film, and video. Prior to MOPA’s founding in 1983, it existed as the “Center for Photographic Arts,” a nonprofit organization created in the early 1970s which exhibited and promoted photography as an art form. Since its founding, MOPA has presented dynamic world-class photography exhibitions in San Diego and built a world class photography collection. 30x: Three Decades highlights one acquisition from each of MOPA’s 30 years, showcasing a selection of influential figures in the history of photography, including works by Alexander Rodchenko, Loretta Lux, Thomas Struth, Lee Friedlander, Robert Adams, Marian Drew and other influential artists.
