Walker Evans American Photographs comes to us from The Museum of Modern Art in NYC and recreates the landmark 1938 exhibition that was the first time a single photographer was exhibited at MoMA. Considered the gold standard for everything else that followed in American photography, the work of Walker Evans remains as captivating and challenging as it was 83 years ago. Based on an exhibition originally organized by The Museum of Modern Art, New York and organized by Sarah Hermanson Meister, former Curator, with Tasha Lutek, Collection Specialist, Department of Photography, The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Support provided by Art Bridges.
Southbound: Photographs of and about the New South comprises fifty-five photographers’ visions of the South over the first decades of the twenty-first century.

The photographs echo stories told about the South as a bastion of tradition, as a region remade through Americanization and globalization, and as a land full of surprising realities.
