By Clement Cheroux, Contribution by Sally Katz & Adam Ryan
Social media isn't just changing the way we interact with each other; it's influencing our culture and redefining what art is. Here, published to accompany an exhibition, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art leads the discussion about how the evolution of photography shapes the way we view ourselves and communicate with each other through the use of social media, thus generating new forms of artistic creation.
Snap + Share beautifully compiles the work from the SFMOMA exhibit, spanning over 125 years and various mediums: from paper-based art to large video screens, projections, and sculptures. By placing special emphasis on Mail Art of the 1960s through the 1980s, this book embodies SFMOMA’s recontextualization of this diverse art movement and its connection to the modern consumption of photography through social media.
