It is always nice to have a new set of eyes to curate an exhibition from a collection that you are very close to. It has been fun and illuminating to have our interns curate shows from our own collection and we asked Eric Pickersgill last year if he would put something together.
He put together a beautiful show called THEY THEM which drew from images in our collection that had two or more figures and was concerned with the dialog between those subjects as well as the dialog with the photographer. When I asked about the name he said that when he spoke about the pieces he was always saying "they" or "them" when describing the images. Seeing our favorite images "playing with others" always makes for new discoveries and deeper appreciation of the work. You can see the full checklist here: Download They_them_image_list
