Unlimited: Recent Gifts from the William Goodman and Victoria Belco Photography Collection
Sunday September 1, 2019
11:00 AM - 7:00 PM
This exhibition celebrates a major gift of photography, donated over a period of several years, from Berkeley collectors William Goodman and Victoria Belco in memory of their daughter Teresa Goodman. While the exhibition features some historical photographs, such as pictures by the early twentieth–century French photographer Jacques–Henri Lartigue (most of whose work was made between the ages of eight and eighteen) and the stunning modernist pictures of the English photographer Bill Brandt, it is especially strong in contemporary work, including images by many living masters such as Robert Adams, Lee Friedlander, William Klein, and Robert Frank.

Unlimited: Recent Gifts from the William Goodman and Victoria Belco Photography Collection provides a reminder of the breadth of scope and variety of practice in photography, as it conveys the tangible excitement these pictures generated for their collectors, who now generously share the fruits of their enthusiasm with us.

Unlimited: Recent Gifts from the William Goodman and Victoria Belco Photography Collection is organized by Adjunct Curator Sandra S. Phillips with Andrew W. Mellon Curatorial Intern Delphine Sims and additional assistance from Assistant Curator Stephanie Cannizzo and Curatorial Assistant Valerie Moon. The exhibition is made possible with generous support from the BAMPFA Trustees and from William Goodman and Victoria Belco, in memory of Teresa Goodman.
