"Christian Boltanski: The Loss of Innocence" on view at Museum of Art

An exhibition of recent work by French artist Christian Boltanski will be on view at the Bates College Museum of Art Jan. 14-March 24, 2000. “Christian Boltanski: The Loss of Innocence” will highlight Boltanski’s photographic ensembles for which he has become widely known over the years in Europe, the United States and Israel. The artist uses children’s school photographs from the 1930s and 1940s found in European archives. Although the children are often portrayed smiling in the original photographs, Boltanski’s enlarged, grainy images become distorted and invoke the imminent tragedy of the Holocaust.
