The International Center of Photography (ICP) proudly announces details about its traveling exhibition, Southern Rites, featuring work by American photographer and filmmaker, and ICP alumna, Gillian Laub.
Organized by the International Center of Photography and ICP Consulting Curator Maya Benton, Southern Rites is a provocative and timely visual study of one community’s struggle to confront longstanding issues of race and inequality. The project began as an exploration of racially segregated proms and homecoming rituals in one community in rural Georgia. Laub continued to photograph its residents for more than a decade, recording their experiences—in their own words— as she created a portrait of an American town. In the process, she investigated the racial tensions that scar much of American history.
