Studio/Archive presents photography from the Tang Museum collection—many of them recent acquisitions—that explore studio portraiture and archives. Works on view range from nineteenth century daguerreotypes and vernacular photography, to contemporary portraiture and video. Together these diverse bodies of work explore themes of agency—how people shape their own identities—and visual representation as a tool for empathy and justice.
Organized to complement the Tang Museum’s presentation of Lessons of the Hour by Sir Isaac Julien, this exhibition aims to extend the conversation around the power of photography to (re)frame ourselves and the world around us through the photographic lens.
