Focusing on works made from 1900 to 1960, Where We Are traces how artists have approached the relationships, institutions, and activities that shape our lives. Drawn entirely from the Whitney’s holdings, the exhibition is organized around five themes: family and community, work, home, the spiritual, and the nation. During the six decades covered here, the United States experienced war and peace, economic collapse and recovery, and social discord and progress. American artists responded in complex and diverse ways, and a central aim of the exhibition is to honor each artist’s efforts to create her or his own vision of American life. The artists and their works suggest that our sense of self is composed of our responsibilities, places, and beliefs.

The exhibition title references the currently popular wave of woman-led activism, as well as women who have been steadily claiming their own ground for centuries, sometimes alone and sometimes collectively. The artists in this exhibition have each forged their own unique path. Whether in the studio or in the streets, these artists have re-imagined a way of being and are living it.
Every year in Rome the International Photography Festival takes place, which commissions a different important photographer a project on the city. Among the many who have participated, we selected four Italian photographers: Olivo Barbieri, Gabriele Basilico, Marco Delogu and Paolo Ventura. We have also added a New York photographer, Leo Rubinfien, who is currently on assignment. Each photographer conveyed his signature style and his identity, but we felt that these particular chosen works shared a common sensitivity toward the beauty of the capital of Italy.
In 1973, a group of African American photographers in New York City published the first volume of The Black Photographers Annual. This exhibition is the first of four rotations that explore each of the four volumes of The Black Photographers Annual, which ended in 1980.

Curated by Dr. Sarah Eckhardt, Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art.
Perceptions + Recognitions is a new body of work by internationally recognized photographer Burk Uzzle commissioned by the Greenville Museum of Art. The exhibition will be twenty (25) original pictures of residents in eastern North Carolina and shown at the Greenville Museum of Art in 2017.
The title reflects the fact that too frequently we hold perceptions about others that are disconnected from their truths and therefore inaccurate. Art has always afforded us the opportunity to share seminal emotions with strangers, to realize a connection, to know that our human experience may not be unique although our circumstances may be unrecognizable

This fall marks the 50th anniversary of the Black Panther Party's founding. The Black Panther Party was one of the most creative and influential responses to racism and economic inequality in American history.

They remain cult heroes today, nearly 50 years after their founding.

Bushwick Chronicle recognizes Bushwick as a historically significant arctic community now in need of documentation. Over the summer of 2016 through a series of open calls, Meryl invited the artists, gallerists, journalists, and organizers of Bushwick to gather for group portraits inspired by Nina Leen’s 1950 portrait of the Abstract Expressionists in “The Irascibles” and Art Kane’s 1958 portrait of Jazz Musicians in “A Great Day in Harlem.” These photographs were taken with a medium format camera using black-and-white film, returning Meryl to her analogue roots and printing in the darkroom. The exhibition of these new photographs is now paired with Meryl’s illustrative painted photographs of Bushwick from the 1980s on.

Jerome Liebling's images, taken on city streets or in rural towns, defies easy categorization. His images are suffused with startling intimacy; the gaze of his subjects reflecting struggles yet to be overcome. The places, too, bear the traces of time and the scars of victory.
