Issues relating to immigration have been front and center in the news, from the recent travel ban to the border wall to the uncertainty of the Dreamers. Until January 27, 2018, Howard Greenberg Gallery will focus on the immigrant experience – from hardship and sacrifice to pride and achievement. The Immigrants will survey the work of more than 40 photographers from the 1860s through 2015, exploring issues of labor, education, and poverty as well as discrimination, assimilation, and a sense of belonging. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, December 14 from 6-8 p.m. A portion of proceeds from the exhibition will benefit the International Rescue Committee (IRC), which supports refugee families in crisis.
More than 70 images exploring these important topics will be on view by Ansel Adams, Boushra Almutawakel, Margaret Bourke-White, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Edward Burtynsky, Robert Capa, Imogen Cunningham, Bruce Davidson, Robert Frank, Ernst Haas, Lewis Hine, Dorothea Lange, Alex Majoli, Ruth Orkin, Bill Owens, Dulce Pinzón, Augustus Frederick Sherman, W. Eugene Smith, Alfred Stieglitz, Tseng Kwong Chi, and Alex Webb, among others.
