This exhibition presents a new genre of large-scale color photography that seeks to tell stories about the past and the present that often have been elided from historical imagery. In the media age, black-and-white documentary photographs have been replaced by ones that utilized the image technologies and experimental techniques to depict history and contemporary experience.
Curated by Mead Director and Chief Curator David E. Little, the exhibition features works by Cindy Sherman, Stan Douglas, Zackary Drucker, Mimi Cherono Ng’ok, Tim Hetherington, Pieter Hugo, Boris Mikhailov and Tim Parchikov.
All are invited to celebrate the opening of this exhibition on Tuesday, Sept. 12. Curatorial remarks begin at 5 p.m. with a reception to follow from 6–8 p.m. Contemporary photographer Mimi Cherono Ng’ok, one of the artists featured in the exhibition, will be in attendance. The event is free and open to all.
