A pop-up exhibition of works by legendary photographer Robert Frank comes to Tisch Library

 

The work of legendary photographer and filmmaker Robert Frank is coming to Tisch Library from October 6 to November 5, in a pop-up exhibition on its way around the world.

Titled Robert Frank Books and Films: 1947-2017, and featuring selections from Frank’s entire artistic body of work, the exhibition was conceived and designed by Frank and his publisher, Gerhard Steidl. Tisch will be the only Boston-area stop for the tour, which will include 50 universities, art schools, museums, and nonprofit spaces worldwide.

“We are very excited about this unique event, and the opportunity it presents to deepen the connection between Tufts and the art and photography communities,” said Dorothy Meaney, interim Tisch Library director. “We look forward to bringing people to campus and showcasing Tisch Library.”

The exhibition will include unframed prints of Frank’s photographs, interspersed with material from his books and films, on banners that will be destroyed after the exhibition, as requested by Frank. “The exhibition is unique in that it’s specifically created for each space. Students, faculty, staff, and visitors will encounter Frank’s books and films in our lobby, hallways, café, and even a stairwell,” Meaney said.
