In conjunction with Walker Evans American Photographs, on display in the Upper Gallery, the Art Museum is featuring the work of
four contemporary photographers in an adjacent gallery installation. Matt Eich,
Mitch Epstein, Andrea Modica, and Jared Thorne each make pictures that resonate
with Walker Evans’s photographs in distinctive ways, both visually and conceptually—and
sometimes unexpectedly. Together they demonstrate how Evans’s work continues
to influence artists today, nearly a century after he first visited the region.
