Overview

Focusing on this season's photography exhibitions (The Provoke Era, Photography Now, Richard Avedon, and Picturing Modernity), teachers will explore the theme of identity as expressed through photographs, as well as how this theme weaves through each of these very different exhibitions. The program includes a private gallery tour with assistant curator of photography Lisa Sutcliffe and an artist-led activity that teachers can re-create in their classrooms.
