Intentional Exposure


Curated by students of Dr. Louise Siddons
Museum Exhibition Course, ART 4813/5813


On view: April 2 — June 1, 2019

Featuring works by well-known photographers Gordon Parks, Sally Mann, Arnold Genthe, Imogen Cunningham and Robert Doisneau, Intentional Exposure invites visitors to think about what these photographers conceal and reveal. What is in their frame, what lies beyond it? Through exploration of historical context and technical choices, Dr. Louise Siddons' students shed light on what is represented in each image — and viewers are invited to draw their own conclusions about the stories being told.
