Harry Callahan.

FUNDACIO "LA CAIXA"

Is it time to reevaluate the legacy of Harry Callahan? The Detroit-born photographer's combination of rigorous formalism and casual intimacy can be seen in this show (organized by the institution's Carlos Gollonet) in the multiple exposures, high-contrast natural scenes, and family portraits as well as the old houses and modern skyscrapers he shot in color. Whether the exhibition will add up to a new take on this most American of American photographers, who died last year at age eighty-six, is an open question, but it will surely celebrate an artist who never lost interest in the seductiveness of visual experience. June 14-July 30; Instituo de America de Santa Fe, Granada, Sept. 21-Oct. 21; Sala San Esteban, Murcia, Spain, Nov. 9- Dec. 10; Fundacio "la Caixa," Palma de Mallorca, Spain, Feb. 27-Apr. 22, 2001.
