Join us for the opening of Intimacy: Photographs from the Collection of Joseph Goins, which will include a talk with Berea College graduate Joseph Goins (Class of 1986). The talk will take place in Presser Hall 128, just across the street from the Doris Ulmann Galleries, with a reception afterwards at the Galleries with snacks and refreshments. All are welcome; no RSVP required!
The black and white photographs featured in this exhibition present images of intimacy, examining the spiritual, emotional, physical, intellectual and experiential aspects of this essential component of the human experience. A gesture, a touch, bodies leaning into one another; a white sun above the Pacific Ocean; a nude self-portrait hidden in the branches of a tree… how is intimacy revealed? Featuring works from the early twentieth century through the present, Goins’ collection invites a deep questioning into our humanity and our being.
Refreshments and snacks will be available after the talk. This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP necessary.
