The Juror

Douglas McCulloh

Douglas McCulloh, Senior Curator of Exhibitions, California Museum of Photography, Riverside. CA.

McCulloh is best-known for system-driven projects that combine Surrealist-inspired chance operations with high-volume photography. The artist’s major bodies of work are multi-layered and system-driven. His projects share a number of common elements: a basis in chance operations and sampling, high-volume image-making, the embrace of new technology, direct engagement with subjects, and the inclusion of layered information including photographs, text, maps, sound, and other data.

McCulloh has curated fifteen exhibitions, including three for the California Museum of Photography. The most noted of these is Sight Unseen: International Photography by Blind Artists, the first major survey of photography by blind artists. His curatorial projects have shown in diverse venues: Kennedy Center for the Arts, Washington D.C.; Centro de la Imagen, Mexico City; Canadian Museum for Human Rights; Flacon Art Center, Moscow; Center for Visual Art, Denver, Colorado; Manuel Álvarez Bravo Center for Photography in Oaxaca; Peterson Automotive Museum, Los Angeles; and Sejong Center, Seoul, South Korea.

McCulloh’s books include: The Great Picture: Making the World’s Largest Photograph; Dream Street; On the Beach; The Edge of Air ; and Chance Encounters. In addition to these monographs, his work has been included in scores of books, many by notable authors such as Lucy R. Lippard, Trisha Ziff, and Eric Renner.

McCulloh is one of six artists who transformed an abandoned southern California F-18 jet hangar into the world’s largest camera to make the world’s largest photograph. The Great Picture is regarded as a punctuation mark at the end of 170 years of film-based photography and the start of the digital era. The project has been the centerpiece of solo exhibitions at institutions such as the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing; Art Center College of Design, Los Angeles; Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C.; and Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans.

McCulloh is a five-time recipient of funding support from the California Council for the Humanities. Projects, exhibitions, and publications have received support from numerous other institutions. They include the Getty Foundation, Ralph M. Parsons Foundation, James Irvine Foundation, Albert A. Dorskind Foundation, California Endowment, and California Historical Society.
