States of America: Photography from the Civil Rights Movement to the Reagan Era
Nottingham Contemporary 
16 September – 26 November 2017

States of America will focus on a generation of photographers that experimented with innovative approaches to documentary photography. Drawing from the collection of the Wilson Centre for Photography, the exhibition will include key works by Diane Arbus, Louis Draper, William Eggleston and Bruce Davidson, as well as Stephen Shore, who in November will be the subject of a major retrospective at MoMA in New York.

This timely exhibition will stretch from the Civil Rights Movement to the Reagan Era, three decades that shaped the polarised landscape of Trump’s America, and will explore tectonic shifts in American society and politics, from the decay of city centres and the decline of industry to suburban sprawl and the development of mass advertising. 

Artists included in the exhibition: Diane Arbus, Dawoud Bey, Mark Cohen, Bruce Davidson, Louis Draper, William Eggleston, Lee Friedlander, Jim Goldberg, Danny Lyons, Mary Ellen Mark, Nicholas Nixon, Bill Owens, Milton Rogovin, Stephen Shore, Joseph Szabo and Garry Winogrand

Free Admission

States of America has been curated by Irene Aristizábal and Abi Spinks. This exhibition is a collaboration with the Wilson Centre for Photography.
