Events for Tuesday, November 22, 2022
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.
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.
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.
MEMBER MOVIE NIGHT | Silent Tuesdays Ingeborg Holm is an excellent example of the social realist movement in Sweden at the time. Sven Holm (Aron Lindgren) opens a grocery store and life is good for his wife, Ingeborg (Hilda Borgström) and their three children. But when Sven becomes sick and dies, Ingeborg tries to keep the store herself.
