PAST EXHIBITIONS

Joshua Rashaad McFadden: I Believe I'll Run On

Artist Joshua Rashaad McFadden uses photography to engage some of the most challenging subject matter of our time. Working across genres—social documentary, reportage, portraiture, book arts, and fine arts—he critically examines race, masculinity, sexuality, and gender in the United States. His work reveals the destructive impact of these constructs on Black Americans. 

James Tylor: From an Untouched Landscape

In his artistic practice, James Tylor highlights under-told and often unseen histories of Aboriginal peoples. Tylor takes an expansive approach to landscape, incorporating his Kaurna knowledge into its presentation, and to the photographic medium, through use of technologies old and new. In Tylor’s hands, photography, once used to survey Aboriginal lands and peoples, becomes a way to indigenize landscapes.
