Selections From the Dean Collection
On View 26 April - 19 July, 2019
Opening Reception: Friday, 26 April, 6 pm.
A career-spanning exhibition of Gordon Parks photographs from the Dean Collection will debut this spring at The Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African and African American Art at the Hutchins Center, Harvard University. Gordon Parks: Selections from the Dean Collection will premiere a selection of works from the collection of Kasseem Dean and Alicia Keys, who hold the largest private collection of works by Gordon Parks.
Recognized as the most important African-American photographer of the 20th century, Parks represented his subjects—from the rural poor and black families living under segregation to fashion models and prominent cultural and political figures—with empathy and dignity, employing the arts to champion social change.
On view April 26th, 2019 through July 19th, 2019, the exhibition is co-organized by The Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African & African American Art at the Hutchins Center, Harvard University and The Gordon Parks Foundation, in cooperation with consulting curator, Dr. Maurice Berger.
