Ferenc Berko drew attention to the beauty that lies in the overlooked details of the everyday visual world. By isolating patterns, shadows, forms, and colors, Berko's images invite viewers to look inquisitively at commonplace materials and experiences. Ferenc Berko: Seen and Seen Again speaks to the breadth, and depth, of the artist's modern sense of vision. Through roughly three dozen black-and-white and color images ranging from 1932 to 1987, the show represents a dialogue over time and within a specific medium, but also between generations. It is curated by Berko's granddaughter, Mirte Mallory, Class of 2002, who shows how Berko maintained and revisited certain themes throughout his long career.
Generous funding for the Hood Museum of Art's presentation of Ferenc Berko: Seen and Seen Again is provided by the Class of 1948.
