Marked, Unmarked, Remembered: A Geography of American History (Photographs by Andrew Lichtenstein)

January 22, 2019 - March 22, 2019

Andrew Lichtenstein photograph of two beachgoers holding each other's hands near a calm surf

From Wounded Knee to the Edmund Pettus Bridge, Marked, Unmarked, Remembered presents photographs by Andrew Lichtenstein of significant sites from U.S. history, posing unsettling questions about the contested memory of traumatic episodes from the nations past.  Focusing especially on landscapes related to African American, Native American and labor history, Lichtenstein reveals new vistas of officially commemorated sites, sites that are neglected or obscured, and sites that serve as a gathering place for active rituals of organized memory. Curator: Mark Ludak, Department of Art and Design
