UMBC’s Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture presents Southern Rites, featuring photography by Gillian Laub, from October 15 through December 12. In Southern Rites, Laub engages her skills as a photographer, filmmaker, and visual activist to examine the realities of racism and raise questions that are simultaneously painful and essential to understanding the American consciousness. Admission to the exhibition is free with timed tickets.
The exhibition is accompanied by an optional viewing of the 90-minute HBO documentary Southern Rites. Visitors who wish to view the film in the CADVC’s screening room should select the “Gallery & Film” option when obtaining tickets.
Visit here for complete information.
