Photographs are uniquely evocative of the human experience. They bear witness to a finite time and place—be it an image of a fleeting encounter or an endured reality—that is contingent upon memory, interpretation, and re-interpretation. This exhibition explores the act of interpretation through the seemingly opposing themes of isolation and togetherness, loss and shared joy, and fear and courage, among others. The photographs seen here, all from recent gifts to the collection, are intended to resonate in some way with the unprecedented realities and profound emotions experienced by many during 2020. No two experiences have been the same; as a result, viewers may find meaning in the images themselves or in the tensions created between them.
