Barbara Tannenbaum is Curator of Photography at the Cleveland Museum of Art, where she recently organized exhibitions of work by TR Ericsson, Hank Willis Thomas and Lois Conner. Other recent exhibitions include DIY: Photographers & Books, the first museum show of print-on-demand photobooks; American Vesuvius: The Aftermath of Mount St. Helens by Frank Gohlke and Emmet Gowin; and Detroit Disassembled: Photographs by Andrew Moore. From 1985 through 2011, Tannenbaum was chief curator at the Akron Art Museum, where she grew the photography collection from 500 to 2,500 works and organized over 85 exhibitions including the first large-scale international exhibition chronicling women’s historic achievements in fine art photography, co-curated with Naomi Rosenblum, and the 1991 Ralph Eugene Meatyard retrospective, co-curated with David Jacobs. Dr. Tannenbaum has authored numerous publications including major books on Ralph Eugene Meatyard (Rizzoli) and on the Akron Art Museum’s collection, and lectured throughout the U.S. and in Canada and China. She serves on the board of the Fred and Laura Ruth Bidwell Foundation.

Dr. Tannenbaum has (hopefully sage) advice and guidance to offer and looks forward to discussing exhibition and book projects still in their development phase. She is interested in seeing many different kinds of work, but prefers not to review photography that is primarily commercial in nature. Nudity is okay as long as it is truly at the service of artistic expression.
