Class Pictures features six figurative works from the ZMA Permanent Collection loosely paired with the work of five contemporary artists to suggest overlapping narratives about social class, economic status, and occupation. Work from the permanent collection includes a large ceramic sculpture by Viola Frey, paintings by Leon Moran, Dupres Fuller, Eastman Johnson, Robert George Harris, and an anonymous American artist from the 19th century. The contemporary artists are:
Melissa Basham, Don Robson, Aubrey Longley-Cook, Yanique Norman and Paul Stephen Benjamin who will present a mix of paintings, collages, cross-stitch portraits, photographs, and video works. The iconography of class, the confluence of medium and message, and the interpretive possibilities within representational figurative work are all evidenced in this mix of old and new approaches to portraiture.
