Opening – Multitude, Solitude: The Photographs of Dave Heath
Join us for the official opening of Multitude, Solitude: The Photographs of Dave Heath, on view in the Canadian Photography Institute Galleries (2nd floor). Openings are free of charge and open to the public.
Whether picking out a single face in a crowd, capturing an act of violence between siblings, or framing close-up portraits of quiet despair, Dave Heath (1931–2016) had an instinctive ability to capture the soul behind the public persona.
Exploring Heath’s artistic trajectory from teenage prodigy to influential photographer, this exhibition celebrates work that reflects the loneliness and alienation of modern life.
Multitude, Solitude: The Photographs of Dave Heath has been organized by The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
From emerging talent to historical archives and established artists, the Canadian Photography Institute is the place to see and study photography in all its forms.
