Perspectives: Recent Gifts of Contemporary Art
The works presented in this exhibition showcase different ways that photographers see, depict, or manipulate the concept of space. All of the works are recent gifts to the George Eastman Museum collection, which the museum actively expands through donations and purchases.
One Hundred Years Ago: George Eastman in 1922
This annual display in the historic mansion provides a glimpse of George Eastman’s life and work one hundred years ago. The new selection of objects highlight the goings on in 1922—most notably the opening of the Eastman School of Music and the Eastman Theatre in downtown Rochester.
Labor Film Series On September 9, 1971, the incarcerated individuals at Attica Correctional Facility, citing systemic abuse and human rights violations, took control of the prison and over thirty hostages. This searing new documentary uses rarely seen footage and new interviews with former inmates and family of the guards to take a new look at the events of that week. Introduction by Jon Garlock, labor historian. Post-screening discussion hosted by the Rochester Education Justice Initiative (REJI).
