Events for Friday, September 24, 2021
Made for broadcast on public television as a “glimpse of the video landscape of tomorrow” (as an announcer at the beginning of the video states), Global Groove takes viewers on a stream-of-consciousness cultural journey around the world through the video medium.
Bea Nettles explores the narrative potential of photography through constructed images often made with alternative photographic processes. This exhibition originally opened on January 31, 2020, but just six weeks later, the museum had to close due to COVID-19 and a virtual version was offered online. Now, the Eastman Museum is pleased to bring the exhibition back to our galleries for visitors to explore in person.
For over five years, photographer Jess T. Dugan and social worker Vanessa Fabbre traveled throughout the United States documenting the life stories of transgender and gender nonconforming older adults, individuals whose experiences exist within the complex intersections of gender identity, age, race, ethnicity, sexuality, socioeconomic class, and geographic location.
Process Demonstration: In this webinar, Historic Process Specialist Nick Brandreth will give a demonstration, showing how stereocards are made using albumen prints and basic materials found at your local art store. Boyer Cataloger in the Department of Photography Lilyan Jones will share a brief history of this fun and unique technology, sharing examples from the museum’s Boyer Collection.

Kopple and her crew were able to gain unprecedented access to the front lines of a labor standoff.
