During the four days of Art in Bloom, March 21–24, tickets are required for admission to the permanent collection in West Building. East Building and the Museum Park will remain open and free to visitors. For this popular event, we strongly encourage visitors to check online ticket availability before arriving on campus, as many time slots are sold out.
You + Me
East Building, Level B, Allen G. Thomas Jr. Photography Gallery; Free
The photographs featured in You + Me reveal the complexities of relationships, particularly those between two people: mother and daughter, a married couple, two friends, colleagues, multiple generations, and neighbors.
Each photograph shows the gray spaces among independence and dependence, vulnerability and resistance, or compassion and indifference. An even more complicated relationship is that of the photographer and his or her subjects. The camera calls into question the candidness of the relationship in the portrait, whether it changes because it is seen through a lens. Artists in the exhibition include Ralph Burns, Sue de Beer, Harry Callahan, Carolyn DeMeritt, Sarah Anne Johnson, Deborah Luster, Danny Lyon, Barbara Morgan, Caroline Vaughan, Alec Soth, and Luis Rey Velasco.
Organized by the North Carolina Museum of Art. This exhibition is made possible, in part, by the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources; the North Carolina Museum of Art Foundation, Inc.; and the William R. Kenan Jr. Endowment for Educational Exhibitions. Research for this exhibition was made possible by Ann and Jim Goodnight/The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Fund for Curatorial and Conservation Research and Travel.
