In the Garden 

July 8 – September 30, 2018

Drawn from the vast George Eastman House collection, the photographs in this exhibition explore uses of gardens and how humans cultivate the landscapes that surround them. From famous locations such as Versailles to the simplest home vegetable garden, from worlds imagined by artists to food production recorded by journalists, the subjects in this exhibition broaden our understanding of photography and how it has been used to record gardens.

Richard Lou: "IN LAK’ECH ALA K’IN," Tú eres mi otro yo, You are my other self

May 6 – July 15, 2018

Mallory/Wurtzburger Galleries

With his exhibition "IN LAK’ECH ALA K’IN," Tú eres mi otro yo, You are my other self, Memphis artist, educator, and activist Richard Lou transforms the Mallory/Wurtzburger Galleries into a work of art that centers around the idea that we as a human species respond best when we work together, create bridges, and seek common purpose. "IN LAK’ECH ALA K’IN,” Tú Eres Mi Otro Yo, You Are My Other Self is a Mayan concept about community that gives voice to humanity's interdependence. Lou's conceptual centerpiece is to explore this idea of mutuality rather than separateness.
