This event has ended.

"Deadpan: Photography, History, Politics" brings together distinctly different bodies of work from Sierra Leone, Lebanon, South Korea, and Australia to consider the efficacy and politics of 'documentary' photography. The exhibition features images by four acclaimed photographic artists-- Anne Ferran, Hein-kuhn Oh, Walid Raad, Candace Scharsu-- that challenge assumptions about the nature of the documentary mode and its role in the representation of history.
