School Photos and Their Afterlives
An array of school photos from across photography's histories and geographies is set in dialogue with works by contemporary artists who have reframed them. The exhibition looks critically at how a ubiquitous yet unremarked vernacular genre has been used to advance ideologies of assimilation and exclusion but also to inspire social and political change.
Artists featured in the exhibition include Marcelo Brodsky, Steven Deo, Mirta Kupferminc, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Silvina Der Meguerditchian, Diane Meyer, Vik Muniz, Lorie Novak, Sandra Ramos, Tomoko Sawada, Abdel Salam Shehada, Carrie Mae Weems, and David Wojnarowicz.
