About this event
Join us on Facebook Live for the Signs of the Times: Documenting the Power of the People, 1960 - Today Artist Talk.
With ages spanning five decades, the photographers in this exhibition - Jim Alexander, Davion Alston, Sheila Pree Bright, Dennis Morton, and Lynsey Weatherspoon - use their cameras to document grassroots racial and social justice advocacy - from the Civil Rights marches of the 191960s60's to today's Black Lives Matter demonstrations and police killings protests. This exhibition is curatorially focused on the texts, signs, and banners carried by participants. We will ask viewers to think about the ways that a practice combining activism and documentary photography has evolved over time? What is new in this digital age? What is the power of the photographic image to affect cultural shift? All of the photographers are currently Atlanta-based. On exhibit will be color/b&w photographs, installation, and video works.
