What Will America Be? Landscape Photography and Climate Crisis in the United States
Join us for a virtual presentation by Kwasi Boyd-Bouldin, artist; Terry Evans, artist; and An-My Lê, artist and Charles Franklin Kellogg and Grace E. Ramsey Kellogg Professor in the Arts, Bard College.

Sarah Greenough, exhibition curator and senior curator and head of the department of photographs at the National Gallery of Art, will give an introduction and moderate questions.

Kwasi Boyd-Bouldin examines unsustainable real estate development in the Los Angeles area and has photographed the Southern California landscape much as Adams did 40 years ago.

Terry Evans, like Adams, photographs both the untouched natural world and the damages we have inflicted on it, providing insight into the complexities and contradictions of the American landscape.

An-My Lê explores sites of conflict in the landscape and questioned what is essential to America. She has asked how critical a sense of wilderness, a sense of vastness (what Adams called “the big view”) is to America’s vision of itself.

Held in conjunction with "American Silence: The Photographs of Robert Adams," on view May 29–October 2, 2022.
