Event Description

Take a closer look at Picturing the South: 25 Years, a major exhibition featuring the works of sixteen artists commissioned through the Picturing the South initiative. Led by a High Museum Docent, we’ll explore current perspectives on Southern subjects and themes, brought to life through contemporary photography.

The exhibition includes the first photographs in Sally Mann’s Motherland series; Dawoud Bey’s over-life-size portraits of Atlanta high school students; Richard Misrach’s Cancer Alley industrial landscapes; and new commissions by An-My Lê, Sheila Pree Bright, and Jim Goldberg.

To allow for social distancing, space is limited, and pre-registration is required. Register today using the ticketing button above or by calling Member and Guest Services at 404-733-4575 (Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–5 p.m.).
