Dorothea Lange (1895-1965) was an instrumental documentary photographer during the twentieth century. Her work focuses on issues ranging from poverty to women’s rights to the erosion of rural communities.

Claudio Parmiggiani: Dematerialization
Exhibition Dates: February 2, 2019 – May 5, 2019
Frist Art Museum is the first in North American to present the works of Claudio Parmiggiani. Parmiggiani’s pieces are usually room-size installations or two- and three-dimensional. He is known for using his signature process, delocazione (displacement), where he arranges objects on his canvas of choice, lights a fire nearby, and allows soot, dust, and pigment to settle on the objects. He then removes the objects and leaves the silhouettes behind to create the final art piece.
