Candida Höfer: Interior Worlds
From November 16, 2011 — February 26, 2012
She opens our eyes… to a Baltimore in which learning and the arts remain activities vital to the life well lived.

Thirteen works by the internationally acclaimed contemporary German photographer Candida Höfer are presented in this intimate exhibition. Known for her large-scale, intensely detailed images of grand architectural spaces such as the Louvre and Paris Opera, Höfer spent several days in Baltimore in 2010 creating spectacular photographs of the George Peabody Library and The Walters Art Museum. These works, as well as others loaned from private collectors and from the artist, are installed in two neoclassical galleries adjacent to the BMA’s collection of 16th- and 17th-century European paintings.
