Inquiring Minds: Picturing the South
From the venue:
In 1996, the High began commissioning photographers from around the globe to engage with and explore the American South’s rich social and geographical landscape. Twenty-five years later, Picturing the South: 25 Years brings together all sixteen artists in one major exhibition. Taken as a whole, the photographs amount to a complex and layered archive of the region that addresses broad themes, from the legacy of slavery and racial justice to the social implications of the evolving landscape and the distinct and diverse character of the region’s people.
Curious about Picturing the South: 25 Years? Inquiring Minds invites participants to explore the exhibition through small group conversation facilitated by museum educators. The session will focus on a handful of artworks and will be participatory in nature—it will not be a lecture. Come as you are, with your observations, ideas, questions, and opinions.
