UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS
DOROTHEA LANGE'S AMERICA
Opens September 14 through December 30
Babcock Wing Gallery
Dorothea Lange. Migrant Mother, Nipomo, California, 1936, Library of Congress, Prints & Photographs Division, FSA/OWI Collection. LC-DIG-fsa-8b29516.


The Great Depression was the catalyst for a tremendous outburst of creative energy in America’s photographic community. The devastation the country endured inspired a host of socially conscious photographers to capture the painful stories of the time. This September, Reynolda House presents Dorothea Lange’s America , an exhibition of original lifetime prints by the legendary documentary photographer.

Highlighting this exhibition are oversized exhibition prints of her seminal images from the Great Depression, including  Migrant Mother, Nipomo, California  from 1936—an emblematic picture that came to personify pride and resilience in the face of abject poverty in 1930s America. Lange’s photographs will be supplemented by photographs by other notable social documentarians of the era, including Walker Evans, Ben Shahn, Russell Lee, and Mike Disfarmer.

All works are from the collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg. This exhibition was organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions. Reynolda House is grateful for the generous support of the exhibition from Lead Sponsors Claire & Hudnall Christopher and Debbie & Mike Rubin and Exhibition Partners Lynn & Barry Eisenberg, Pam & Fred Kahl, and Phoenix Packaging.

What can we know from a photograph?

Drawn from the art collection of Wake Forest University, the photographs in this exhibition complicate or question the legacy of documentary photography. Featuring artists Julie Moos, Barbara Kruger, and Collier Schorr., The exhibition examines photography’s relation to reality as well as its ability to create alternate realities.

After Documentary was curated by students in Art 259: History of Photography at Wake Forest University, taught in Spring 2018 with Professor Morna O’Neill.
