Museum of Fine Arts, Houston presents “Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings” closing day

WHEN:  Sunday 12:15pm

WHERE:  Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 1001 Bissonnet St., Houston, TX 77005, Get Directions >

COST:  Free with museum admission

DETAILS:  For more than 40 years, Sally Mann has made experimental, elegiac, and hauntingly beautiful photographs that explore overarching themes of existence: memory, desire, death, the bonds of family, and nature’s magisterial indifference to human endeavor.

“Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings” is the first retrospective exhibition of the artist. Through more than 120 works, many of which have never been exhibited or published, the survey investigates how Mann’s relationship with her native Virginia – a place and identity rich in literary and artistic traditions but troubled by history – has shaped her work. Fully immersed in the visual and literary culture of the American South, Mann has long written about what it means to live in the South and be identified as a Southerner. She uses her love of the area and knowledge of its historically fraught heritage to ask powerful, provocative questions – about history, identity, race, and religion – that reverberate across geographic and national boundaries.
