Fragile Freedoms: Maggie Meiners Revisits Rockwell exhibition

 

Fragile Freedoms: Maggie Meiners Revisits Rockwell
February 7–June 13, 2021

As timely and thought provoking as it gets. This exhibition reimagines the iconic work of Norman Rockwell through the lens of modern America. With stunningly vivid detail, Maggie Meiners’s carefully constructed photographs turn nostalgia on its head and rework Rockwell’s familiar imagery to address contemporary issues including racism, sexuality, gender roles, and the impact of technology.
