Culture and Resistance Civil Rights Photography: Memphis 1968
Aug. 11-Sept. 13
The Civil Rights Movement generated an abundance of photographs documenting the African American fight for equality and economic, political and social justice. The images captured by local and national news outlets recorded this struggle and have become iconic images that represent a collective memory of the era. Curated by Leila I. Hamdan from the UM Libraries Special Collections, these photographs illustrate a new view of the struggle in Memphis.]

Shara Rowley Plough: The Hunting Set
Aug. 11-Sept. 13
The Hunting Set continues Shara Rowley Plough’s seven-year exploration of conspicuous consumption and material culture. The installation, at first, depicts a benign English hunting party. However, by crocheting the installation from a waste material, Plough attempts to reveal the ugliness of manufactured aspiration. The hunt runs parallel to our desire to attain a material status that we have been taught to admire.
