Details

Emmy award-winning filmmaker and media-artist Jill Evans Petzall’s innovative exhibit explores how Western biases are promoted across cultures through stereotypes in travel photography. Visitors can record their own stories with the artist on selected days. A selection of the recordings will become a lasting part of the artwork. This interactive exhibit asks us to discover what our snapshots reveal beyond ourselves and our “selfies.”

The exhibition is made possible by Mr. and Mrs. Ira H. Bergman, Mary and Steven Schoolman, Joseph Evans, Capes Sokol, Karen Kalish, Susan Block, Esq. and Freida Smith, Nancy Kalishman, J. David and Lucy Levy, Nina Needleman, Susan Hacker Stang, Carol Salomon and the Salomon Family Fund, Deborah O’Brien and Richard Seiter, Christy Beckmann, Dr. Stan and Nancy Feldman, Kim Gladstone, Zora S. Hanko, Michelle and Scott Harris, Susan and Jeff Hochman, Sally S. Levy and many other generous donors.

Gallery Talk: Tuesday, October 10 at 6 p.m.
