Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum
Kemper Art Museum, St. Louis, MO 63112

Molly Moog, curatorial assistant at the Kemper Art Museum, discusses two newly opened photography installations. The first highlights travel photography taken primarily for American and European audiences by commercial studios in Italy, Japan, Egypt, and the Ottoman Empire in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The second examines the works of Martín Chambi and Edward Sheriff Curtis, who carried out influential photographic practices at different latitudes of the Americas in the early twentieth century. The juxtaposition of Chambi and Curtis’s images creates a context for dialogue about the photography of Indigenous communities under the conditions of settler colonialism and during rapid processes of modernization and urbanization in the Americas.

Free and open to the public.
