Revelations II: Recent Photography Acquisitions presents a sweeping survey of documentary and fine-art photographic traditions practiced in the region from the early 20th century to the present. Acquired by the Museum over the past decade, these photographs represent diverse perspectives and experiments within the medium, and reflect the depth and complexity of the American South.
Revelations II represents an array of photographic processes and techniques made by a diverse group of photographers that highlight many divergent themes. In recent years, emerging and underrepresented photographers have been a focus of the Museum’s photography exhibitions, programming and acquisitions.
Since Roger Houston Ogden’s original donation of 600 works of art in 2003, the Museum’s permanent collection of paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture and photographs has grown to more than 4,000 works – all acquired through the generosity of artists, patrons and collectors. Today, Ogden Museum’s permanent collection of more than 1,500 photographs represents one of the most important and comprehensive collections of photography from the American South in the world.
This exhibition is curated by Richard McCabe, Curator of Photography at Ogden Museum.
