John J. Curley, Wake Forest University Professor of Art History, will discuss American photography from the 1960s and 1970s, thinking specifically about the exhibition The Family of Man, which opened at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1955 and traveled globally thereafter.
After describing this exhibition and its influence, Curley will consider the ways that photographers—including Robert Frank, Roy DeCarava, and Diane Arbus, and Kwame Brathwaite—used their images to reject the show’s optimistic view of a unified global community. Advance registration is encouraged.
