A new exhibit will bring together the work by an innovative group of photographers when it opens next week at the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts.

“Modus Operandi:  Contemporary Photography” opens at the downtown Tampa museum on Jan. 15. It is the first time this photography collection from BNY Mellon will be avaiable for the public to view.

“The exhibiting group of artists employ non-traditional methods in making their work — sometimes technical, sometimes conceptual — that speaks to the performative nature of contemporary photography,” according to FMoPA. “The photographs speak about the photographers as performers themselves.”

“We are honored to host one of the largest photography selections from BNY Mellon ever shown,” said FMoPA Executive Director Zora Carrier, Ph.D. “It’s our goal to collaborate with top artists and collectors to produce exhibitions of the highest quality.”

Artists in the exhibit, which runs through April 15, represent 8 countries and includes: Walead Beshty, Miriam Bohm, Yasumasa Morimura, Zanele Muholi, Alex Prager, Erin Shirreff, and Michalene Thomas, among others, Dr. Carrier said.

“Modus Operandi: Contemporary Photography” from the collection of BNY Mellon will be on view during regular museum operating hours and is included in the general admission fee. For more information, go to FMoPA
