Mead Art Museum
41 Quadrangle Dr,
Amherst, MA 01002
All are invited to celebrate these exhibitions and the role of the art museum as a home both to global art and patrons, at an opening reception on Tuesday, Sept. 12. Curatorial remarks begin at 5 p.m. with a reception to follow from 6-8 p.m. Mimi Cherono Ng’ok (Nairobi, Kenya), one of the contemporary artists featured at the Mead, will be in attendance.
Tell It Like It Is — or Could Be presents a new genre of large-scale color photography that seeks to tell stories about the past and the present that often have been elided from historical imagery. In the media age, black-and-white documentary photographs have been replaced by ones that utilize image technologies and experimental techniques to depict history and contemporary experience. The exhibition, curated by David E. Little, features works by Cindy Sherman, Stan Douglas, Zackary Drucker, Mimi Cherono Ng’ok, Tim Hetherington, Peter Hugo, Boris Mikhailov and Tim Parchikov.
