Events for Saturday, October 1, 2022
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.
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.
Anastasia Samoylova’s photographs draw us in with the promise of luxurious paradise but then reveal a crumbling landscape that nature promises to reclaim. In FloodZone, Samoylova focuses on the southern US, where the sought-after tropical climate drives the real estate market to continue to build upon land that is slipping into the ocean.
