Event Description

Dr. Shannon Egan, Director of Schmucker Art Gallery at Gettysburg College, will discuss Curtis' work in relationship to varying perceptions and politics of the artist's Native American subject as well as to photography's inseparable and fraught connection with notions of truth. This presentation considers three divergent moments over the three decades of Curtis' career to provide a broader understanding of how carefully manipulated depictions of Native Americans nonetheless pictured a "real" cultural truth.
