Events for Saturday, March 4, 2023
On March 4, the George Eastman Museum will open a new exhibition space. The Gallery Obscura will feature exhibitions created or presented in collaboration with community organizations and school and youth programs, projects focused on Greater Rochester, and exhibitions from the museum’s collections that are thematically related to community events or that support other museum initiatives and programming. The inaugural exhibition in the Gallery Obscura is being produced in partnership with Flower City Arts Center featuring 678 Photo Club in 2021 and 2022.

While the camera freezes them into still lifes, a sense of continuity—like the arc of a story—happens as one realizes that Ekberg (American, b. 1975) invented, manifested, documented, and concluded these events. The objects take on lives of their own, even though we know that such agency is impossible.
