From war and human rights to cultural identity and domestic violence, Susan Meiselas's (American, b. 1948) work covers a wide range of subjects and countries. This retrospective brings together projects from the beginning of her career in the 1970s to the present day, including her iconic portraits of carnival strippers, vivid color images of the conflicts in Central America in the 1980s, and an ongoing investigation into the history and aftermath of the Kurdish genocide.
Recent Guggenheim Fellow and former MacArthur Fellow, documentary photographer Susan Meiselas is known works that explore marginalized communities, civil uprisings and genocide. Associated with Magnum Photos since 1976, and a full member since 1980, her work is extraordinary for its use of photography, video, sound and installation that explores “scales of time and conflict.”
