Transgressive Photography from the Hood Museum of Art

August 10 through December 8, 2013

Photographs that startle, disturb, and cause one to question are the subjects of this exhibition, which was organized by Virginia Beahan and Brian Miller, two professors who teach in Dartmouth College's Studio Art Department. Surveying the museum's collection, they selected both black-and-white and color photographs that push boundaries of medium and subject. Works in the exhibition span the second half of the twentieth century to the present day and include photographs by such artists as Fiona Foley, Tierney Gearon, Luis Gispert, Susan Meiselas, Gary Schneider, and Francesca Woodman.

This exhibition was organized by the Hood Museum of Art and was generously supported by Rona and Jeff Citrin '80 and the William Chase Grant 1919 Memorial Fund.

Press Coverage: Mentioned in The Dartmouth and reviewed in The Dartmouth. Also mentioned in the August 12 print issue of TIME magazine! If you subscribe to TIME, click here to see the "Pop Chart" online as well.
