Reception with James Barker, Tracy Martin and Michelle Moore Peel
Thursday, March 5th from 6:00 – 8:00 pm
Never before . . . has the work of photographers James Barker, Spider Martin and Charles Moore been brought together like this. By combining their work, the exhibition captures in a new way the angst, courage and chaos of this seminal moment in American history. - Steven Kasher
Steven Kasher Gallery’s Selma March 1965 exhibition commemorates the 50th anniversary of the marches and the catalyzation of the Voting rights Act. The Steven Kasher Gallery has been dedicated to exposing work on the Civil Rights Movement; this Selma March 1965 exhibition marks the gallery’s 30th public show on the subject. The exhibition has rightfully earned much press.
Selma March 1965 presents a collection of over 150 period prints depicting three Selma-to-Montgomery marches. When they were taken these works rocked the nation and galvanized the Civil Rights Movement; today they stand in memoriam, but still chill us to our humanitarian core. Galelry Director, Steven Kasher said of the image-selection: “Together the images . . . present a complex compelling tableau that is both monumental and intimate, brave and vulnerable. [It] is inspiring, but also a chilling reminder that those who fight for social justice do at great risk, [and] with no guarantee that their efforts will be successful” (Kasher Press Release).
