About The Event

Watch the video:

Get to know the museum's collection with this series of public virtual print viewings. Curatorial Assistant Erica McKeehen will lead a discussion on works in the permanent collection that relate to themes in the current exhibition, American Epidemic: Guns in the United States. Drawing on techniques of photojournalism, documentary, landscape, and forensic photography, the artists presented in this session address guns in American culture either directly or indirectly, by questioning the roles of photography pertaining to memory, the media, and evidence in instances of violence. Artists featured include Richard Barnes, Carlos Javier Ortiz, Christian Patterson, Taryn Simon, Angela Strassheim, and more.

This session will not be recorded in order to better facilitate conversation amongst participants.
