“exploring the history of photography”

In retrospect, it is remarkable how thoroughly UCR/CMP's exhibitions, programs, and publications have explored many of photography's early technological achievements and pointed toward future possibilities in optical recording, communication, and expression. Most photography galleries and museums during these past 30 years have concentrated on the exhibition of narrative photographs by blue-chip photographers. UCR/CMP has consistently pushed beyond this and in the spirit of innovation that has marked photography's 180-year history, looked at photography's relationship to alternative technologies and explored the conceptual links to other forms of communication, media, and expression. UCR/CMP's presentation in the gallery and on the web utilize video, computer imaging and communications, virtual reality, and electronic mapping. The museum explores photography's integration into other fine art forms such as film, dance, sculpture, poetry, audio and music. At the same time UCR/CMP investigates photography's impact on media and popular culture, and has consistently deconstructed the interrelationships between media and politics. During these past 30 years and particularly during the last decade UCR/CMP has supported photographic investigations into the inherent cultural, political,, and aesthetic structures through which we read the photographic as the real and by which we make assumptions about history and reality.
