A Long Arc: Photography and the American South
From the venue:
Please join us for an illuminating event with Gregory Harris, Curator of Photography at the High Museum, as we delve into the magnificent exhibition and accompanying catalog A Long Arc: Photography and the American South.
As the first major survey of Southern photography in twenty-five years, this exhibition examines the South’s complicated history and reveals its critical impact on the evolution of the medium, posing timely questions about American culture and character. With more than one hundred photographers represented, including Gordon Parks, William Eggleston, Sally Mann, Carrie Mae Weems, Dawoud Bey, and An-My Lê, A Long Arc captures the immense complexity of the region in two hundred and fifty photographs taken in the area from 1845 to present.
Alongside several acclaimed photographers featured in the exhibition, Greg Harris will lead an evening of great discussion, passed hors d’oeuvres, and a selection of wines. Doors will open at 5 p.m. with a brief presentation to follow.
