Our country is in a dark place right now. We’re experiencing civil unrest that rivals the environment of the 1960s. In many ways, it feels like our country has gotten relatively nowhere in the last fifty years.
This exhibition, “The Fire Next Time” by Schapiro and “#1960Now” by Pree Bright, is an artistic representation of that feeling. Schapiro and Pree Bright, both photographic powerhouses in their own right, document similar subject matter occurring fifty years apart.
Laney Contemporary worked with Jackson Fine Art in Atlanta to present this exhibition, which will be on display through Nov. 7.
