The program spotlights "Subjective Objective: A Century of Social Photography" with curator-led tours on October 3. Subjective Objective traces the history of documentary photography, from the late 19th century to the present. Iconic documentary images have become a staple in art history classes and museum exhibitions, shaping our visual perceptions of people, places, and events; but that is a relatively new standard. Photographers have long sought to shape public opinion about social issues, outside the rubric of being considered “art.” They often reinvented the genre in response to evolving concerns and appealing to audiences; dynamically swaying between goals of exposing social ills and promoting nationalistic agendas; between emphasizing the collective over the individual, and vice versa. In recognizing that such tactics originated long before the existence of current social media platforms, which inundate our daily lives with visual media, visitors may reconsider their own relationships with images: the ones they view, as well as the ones they post. In addition, New Jersey-based independent alternative folk band Cold Weather Company returns to the museum to perform. Combining the songwriting experience of its three members – Brian Curry, Jeff Petescia, and Steve Shimchick – Cold Weather Company carries a diverse sound, rich with vocal harmonies and instrumental builds.
