This event has ended.

Framing Community features a selection of seventeen visions and narratives representing communities in a conflicted, dispersed, and racially fractured state. The subjects of this photo exhibition are searching to belong, while living in exile and navigating shifting politics and identities. Organized into four thematic sections: Longing for Community, Shifting Community, Contested Territories, and Displaced Community, the exhibition includes works by photographers Bruno Barbey, René Burri, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bruce Davidson, Bieke Depoorter, Carl de Keyzer, Paul Fusco, Jim Goldberg, Thomas Hoepker, Josef Koudelka, Susan Meiselas, Alessandra Sanguinetti, David Seymour, Alec Soth, Larry Towell, Peter van Agtmael and Alex Webb.

Framing Community: Magnum Photos, 1947–Present was developed over a two-semester curatorial seminar, led by Art History Professor Maria Antonella Pelizzari, and is the result of an exceptional team effort by the graduate students involved in the Advanced Curatorial Certificate at Hunter College. In addition to the exhibition, the class produced a comprehensive catalogue, published by Hirmer Verlag and available through University of Chicago Press and Thames and Hudson.
