Home: What Does It Look?Like? Gordon Parks Responds

Livestream? talk and conversation with Deborah Willis, chair of the department of photography and imaging at New York University,?Tisch?School of the Arts. Offered in conjunction with the exhibition "Gordon Parks: 'Homeward to the Prairie I Come'"
What does home look like? Is it a physical space or the people, the family, that make a place home? In the 21st century, as we cross states and borders, seeking comfort, safety, and identity, we seek new ways of picturing home. Willis creates a framework for reflecting on the photographs of Gordon Parks and the various experiences he documented of families and individuals in the United States, Canada, Brazil, and Europe. What foodways and styles of dress sustained them over time? Willis reconsiders Gordon Parks' impact on the families he met, interviewed, and photographed; explores concepts of memory and hope; and challenges narratives on identity and empowerment through the lens of family.
