Fantasy Life: Baseball and the American Dream

Artist Talk with Tabitha Soren

In 2002, Tabitha Soren first began photographing a group of minor league draft picks for the Oakland A’s—young men coming into the major league farm system straight from high school or college. Fifteen years after that first shoot, her forthcoming book Fantasy Life portrays a selection of these stories, gathering together a richly textured series of photographs taken on the field and behind the scenes at games, along with commentaries by each of the players and memorabilia from their lives—from kindergarten-age baseball cards to x-rays of player injuries.

Longer Ways to Go: Photographs of the American Road

Gallery Talk with Andrew Kensett

The upcoming Longer Ways to Go exhibition will explore how photographs made of and on America’s roads have influenced and been influenced by the construction of an American identity. The road is bound up with American ideals of small-town life, the natural landscape, the national heritage of westward expansion, and the exercise of personal freedom, to name a few. Join Assistant Curator Andrew Kensett in the gallery for discussion about the photographs.

The purpose of this second triennial Photobooks exhibition is to explore the range of ways that artists are using newly available commercial technologies in order to express themselves today. The exhibition represents the books chosen by judges Rebecca Senf, Mary Virginia Swanson, Darius Himes, Larissa Leclair, Christian Waguespack and Philip Zimmermann.
