From January 8 to April 12, at The Hood Museum, Hanover; The exhibition School Photos and their Afterlives is exhibited
An array of school photos from across photography’s histories and geographies is set in dialogue with works by contemporary artists who have reframed them. The exhibition looks critically at how a ubiquitous yet unremarked vernacular genre has been used to advance ideologies of assimilation and exclusion but also to inspire social and political change.
Artists featured in the exhibition include Marcelo Brodsky, Steven Deo, Mirta Kupferminc, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Silvina Der Meguerditchian, Diane Meyer, Vik Muniz, Lorie Novak, Sandra Ramos, Tomoko Sawada, Abdel Salam Shehada, Carrie Mae Weems, and David Wojnarowicz.
The show is the result of the research carried out during many years by Marianne Hirsch and Leo Spitzer, who are the curators of the exhibition. Based on this they wrote a book in which I also have the honor to be included: School Photos in a Liquid Time.
This exhibition is organized by the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College, and was generously supported by The Charles Gilman Family Endowment.
