New Photography Happy Hour Preview

Thu, November 5th, 2020 at 6:00 PM

Join NOMA for an exhibition preview during happy hour for our fall exhibition New Photography: Create, Collect, Compile. Sign up to join the Zoom video session on Thursday, November 5, from 6 to 6 pm with Russell Lord, the Freeman Family Curator of Photographs, Prints and Drawings, and Brian Piper, Mellon Foundation Assistant Curator for Photography, as they share the work of four contemporary photographers and discuss themes from the exhibition. Questions and feedback are encouraged.

Registration will close at 3 pm on November 5.


This exhibition presents the work of four photographers, all of whom work with, and critique, these new practices in photography. Unified by their understanding of the photograph as an ambiguous messenger, each of these artists creates, collects, or compiles photographs to trace narratives about identity, community, and power. These narratives are then presented in forms that invite us to consider the relationship between photographs and the spaces in which they are taken or viewed. Collectively, they assert that photography, as it currently exists, is a kind of open-source language. The exhibition will open to the public on November 6, 2020 in the Templeman Galleries at NOMA.
