"No strangers: Ancient wisdom in a modern world," is the Annenberg Space forPhotography newest exhibition, illuminating the wonder of culture and the predicament of indigenous people throughout the world. Additionally, the show will be guest curated by esteemed anthropologist, author and photographer Wade Davis.
Spanning cultures from Nepal to Borneo to Ethiopia to South Dakota, the artists explore the ways various cultures express a shared humanity and navigate the circle of life. Through the questioning of life and our consequential legacy, the show strives to examine the many themes that run concurrently throughout each culture.
In addition to the vast number of works featured by an array of different artists, there will also be an original short documentary produced by Arclight Productions specifically for the Annenberg Space for Photography. Filmed in many locations, from Washington, DC to British Columbia, Canada to London to Mongolia, the documentary will feature additional photographs, interviews and behind the scenes footage with exhibit photographers, indigenous people and experts. The film will examine indigenous cultures through photography’s lens and encourage viewers to consider ancient traditions in a new context.
