12 Oct-26 Nov. Matera Imagined/Matera Immaginata: Photography and a Southern Italian Town. Exhibition highlighting how photography has framed modern perceptions of Matera, a city in Italy's southern Basilicata region noted for its millennia-old cave dwellings.
The show charts Matera’s recent evolution from the ancient backwater made famous in Carlo Levi’s best-selling memoir Christ Stopped at Eboli to its designation as European Capital of Culture in 2019.
Offering a new narrative about Matera’s ancient heritage, the exhibition features works by celebrated photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Esther Bubley, Luigi Ghirri, Emmet Gowin, David Seymour and Carrie Mae Weems.
