    Lyric Documentary: The Works of Walker Evans

    Location: Morris B. Belknap Gallery
    Dates: September 20 – November 1, 2019
    Events: Opening October 3, 5:00 – 7:00pm

    This exhibit focuses on a two-year period (1935-36) during which the American photographer Walker Evans
    created some of the most iconic images of America in throes of the Great Depression. Featuring letters and photographs
    from the Roy Stryker Papers, housed at the Archives & Special Collections of the University Libraries at the University
    of Louisville, this exhibition includes a special section on Evans’s photographs for 
    Let Us Now Praise Famous Men,
    a book written by James Agee. This exhibition is curated by MFA candidate Zed Saeed.




    Gentlemen’s Clubs: Photographs by Zed Saeed

    Location: Morris B. Belknap Gallery & Dario A. Covi Gallery
    Dates: September 20 – November 1, 2019
    Events: Opening October 3, 5:00 – 7:00pm

    Saeed’s graduate work uses the aesthetics of straight photography to capture images of places, and people,
    that are off-limits, or inaccessible. The Gentlemen’s Clubs of Louisville often hide in plain sight. Saeed’s photography
    of these clubs is an ongoing project, in which he hopes to bring back images and stories of a forbidden space
    and its inhabitants. Through photographs made with a large-format view camera, and hours of
    recorded interviews,
    Saeed’s current iteration of the project centers on the women who work in these clubs, and presents their
    daily work-lives of emotional labor.


    Snap! Mobile Truck Gallery

    Snap! is directed by Professors of Criminal Justice Benjamin Fisher and Heather Ouelette, Professor of Public Health
    Aishia Brown and Professor of Photography Mary Carothers.

    Snap! is a collaborative social change PhotoVoice project aimed at educating citizens and building advocacy for including student
    voice in decisions about safety in public schools. A project team of university and high school students, local policymakers,
    and professors are coming together to address shared concerns and guide the future trajectory of school safety toward a path
    of shared decision-making and inclusiveness. Through a series of photography and writing workshops, students
    will share their experiences in a way that will center their voices in local school and district-wide decisions. The students’
    culminating photographic art will be showcased in a box truck that has been converted into both a gallery and functioning camera.
    Watch for the mobile gallery to pop up in neighborhoods city-wide during the 2019 Louisville Photo Biennial.
