Temporary Exhibitions, Harrington Gallery
French photographer Serge Hambourg's work provides an eyewitness account of the events of May 1968 in Paris, when student and worker strikes against the political and social establishment brought the country to a standstill. Barricades went up, arrests were made, and street fighting and other violence roiled France during a time of similar protests around the world. The thirty-six photographs in this exhibition depict protesters marching in the streets of Paris as well as the reactions of bystanders and opposition members, who were loyal to the government of President Charles de Gaulle.
This exhibition was organized by the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College, and was generously funded by the Parnassus Foundation, courtesy of Jane and Raphael Bernstein.
