By recontextualizing images and text from the exhibition catalogue of Edward Steichen’s renowned 1955 exhibition, The Family of Man, Natalie Krick and Kelli Connell comment on the original exhibition's distinctly patriarchal, Western perspective. In doing so, the artists pose an interesting question of the role museums play — both historically and today — in determining not only which stories are told, but how, and for whom. Attendees will be able to view the original catalogue and the artists' edited version side-by-side for comparison.

The Museum of Contemporary Photography's chief curator Karen Irvine and curator Kristin Taylor will be in conversation with Krick and Connell to provide a contemporary perspective on how museums, including their own, can approach curation with more intentionality.
