Many might see sports and the art world as being world's apart- one discipline defined by muscle, the other by intellect.
In reality, they have more in common than you might think. Much more.
We are demonstrating that this summer as we present Who Shot Sports: A Photographic History, 1843 to the Present along with complementary exhibitions and programs to stimulate conversation, reflection and understanding about these not-so-disparate disciplines.
The show, curated by Photographic historian Gail Buckland and organized by the Brooklyn
Museum, features nearly 200 photographs from a wide array of sports around the globe, exposing not only the physical prowess of athletes but universal themes such as aesthetic beauty, teamwork and raw human emotion.
