ABOUT RICH FRISHMAN
Join Curatorial Fellow Brian Piper in conversation with photographer Rich Frishman, among the artists represented in the exhibition You Are Here: A Brief History of Photography and Place. Frishman will discuss his ongoing series Ghosts of Segregation which photographically explores the vestiges of America’s racism as seen in the vernacular landscape: Schools for “colored” children, theatre entrances and restrooms for “colored people,” lynching sites, juke joints, jails, hotels, and bus stations. What is past is prologue. As Frishman writes on his website, “Segregation is as much current events as it is history. These ghosts haunt us because they are so very painfully alive.”
