From The National Gallery of Art:
Artists and American Communities, Then and Now
Join us for thought provoking dialogues with artists and scholars related to the exhibition, Gordon Parks: The New Tide, Early Work 1940–1950. Conversations will explore some of the inspiring cooperative relationships between artists and American communities. Presentation topics will range from the history of government support for artists and community centers during the 1930s and 1940s, to the impact of community programs on Parks’s development as a photographer, to examples of how artists are working today. Check out our featured speakers on our website. The exhibition, which will be open through February 18, revisits the meteoric development of Parks as a photographer, his social documentary, industrial, fashion, and film work, and the meaning of this work in picturing and representing the African diaspora.
