American Silence Exhibition Trailer

Robert Adams has made compelling, provocative, and highly influential photographs depicting the inherent beauty and fragility of the American landscape and the inadequacy of our response to it. This exhibition explores the reverential way he looks at the world around him and the almost palpable silence of his work. On view at the National Gallery of Art: May 29 – October 2, 2022 The exhibition and catalog are made possible through the leadership support of the Trellis Fund and a generous gift from Jane P. Watkins. The exhibition is also made possible in part by The Shared Earth Foundation. Additional support is provided by Randi and Bob Fisher, Wes and Kate Mitchell, Nion McEvoy, Greg and Aline Gooding, and the James D. and Kathryn K. Steele Fund for Photography.
