From its early days, photography has been deeply engaged with notions of identity, from itinerant portraiture to documenting the faces and bodies of “the other” in 19th-century colonial and medical photography, for example. Find out more about the ways contemporary artists are tapping into, expanding upon, and challenging these images of the self in Being: New Photography 2018. Meet at the entrance to Being: New Photography 2018, Floor 3.

This session is led by Petra Pankow.

Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with collections and special exhibitions.

Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
