Dorothea Lange’s America
Exhibition Dates: June 6–August 23, 2014
Member Preview Reception and Artists’ Panel: Friday, June 6, 2014, 6-8pm
Intimate photographs of people and land by Dorothea Lange (1895-1965) captured pride and resilience in the face of suffering during the Depression-era through the postwar period. Her work raised awareness and brought federal relief to struggling Americans, and influenced documentary photography by highlighting the camera as an instrument for social change. The exhibition will feature 30 black and white photographs depicting Lange’s personal documentation of Depression-era American life and post-WWII America.
All works are from the collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg, and was organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions.
