Picturing the South: 25 Years

Thru Sun 02/06/2022

In 1996, the High began commissioning photographers from across the world to engage with and explore the American South’s rich social and geographic landscape for its Picturing the South initiative. To date, the Museum has commissioned 16 artists and has built a collection of more than 250 photographs as part of the program, which include some of the most iconic photography projects of the last quarter century.

To mark the 25th anniversary of Picturing the South, the High will mount a major exhibition that brings together all the commissions for the first time. Works on view will include photographs Sally Mann, Dawoud Bey, Richard Misrach, An-My Lê, Sheila Pree Bright, and Jim Goldberg, among others.
