Pop-Up: The Skateroom

Etherton Gallery’s first exhibition of the 2018-2019 season, The Unguarded Moment highlights a selection of photographs made in Asia and the Middle East by legendary Magnum photographer Steve McCurry.  McCurry is best known for his richly colored photographs of rural life, serendipitous street scenes, and unforgettable portraits like the famed Afghan Girl (1984), arguably one of the most recognizable photographs in the world. In a world flooded with images, his photographs take up residence within you and transcend the specific time and place of their making. Photographs of India’s hijra communities by Japanese photographer Takeshi Ishikawa will be on display in the Axial Gallery. The Hijras are part of an indigenous transgender tradition in South Asia. Takeshi Ishikawa was W. Eugene Smith’s assistant in Minamata, Japan in the early 1970s, and has been photographing hijra communities in India since the 1990s.

In This Together: Sixty Years of Daring to Create a More Perfect Arizona

Reception: 7-10pm, January 12, 2019

Etherton Gallery is honored to host the traveling exhibition, In This Together, Sixty Years of Daring to Create a More Perfect Arizona, which celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Arizona ACLU. It features 40 Arizona artists, whose work reflects the ACLU’s mission to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and laws of the United States guarantee everyone.  The artwork featured in the exhibition was selected from a pool of Arizona artists who responded to a public call for artwork relating to the ACLU’s mission. Since it’s founding, the ACLU of Arizona has worked in courts, legislatures and communities statewide to protect the constitutional rights of all people, taking up the toughest civil liberties fights.
