Theater of the Streets: Social Landscapes Through the Lens of Jill Freedman

January 24 - March 11
Opening Reception: Monday, January 24, 5-7 p.m.
Curators Talk: TBD

Street photographer Jill Freedman (1939 – 2019) spent her life with her lens towards the fringes, where she felt a deep affinity with the marginalized and the downtrodden. Though her most popular works focus on social and political movements such as the Gay Liberation Movement and the Poor People’s Campaign of 1968, Freedman’s work is inclusive and wide-ranging. As a street photographer, Freedman was closely connected to her subjects and her setting. This exhibit will take you through these “scapes,” focusing on representations of power, time and change, sound and movement, and Jill herself. In doing so, this exhibit will show viewers Freedman’s undeniable artistry in documenting scenes of struggle, heartbreak, justice, and triumph.
