CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts
October 4–December 17, 2011
As the United States endures its most significant economic downturn since the Great Depression, the Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts reexamines the well-known photography program of the Farm Security Administration (FSA), which was active from 1935 through 1944 and employed such iconic artists as Walker Evans, Ben Shahn, Dorothea Lange, and Marion Post Wolcott. Inspired by their example, the Wattis commissioned 12 contemporary photographers to travel the United States, documenting its land and people.
