"Gillian Laub has spent the last two decades investigating political conflicts, exploring family relationships, and challenging assumptions about cultural identity. Her work frequently addresses the experiences of adolescents and young adults in transition who struggle to understand their present moment and collective past. In Southern Rites, Laub engages her skills as a photographer, filmmaker, storyteller, and visual activist to examine the realities of racism and raise questions that are simultaneously painful and essential to understanding the American consciousness."
Southern Rites is organized by the International Center of Photography, New York. Lamont Gallery showing of Southern Rites is supported by Marina and Andrew E. Lewin ’77; P’07, P’10.
Reception: Thursday, October, 25, 5:30-7:30
