‘Outdoors the Lorraine’ pictures exhibit opens at Nationwide Civil Rights Museum – FOX13 Information Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Outside the Lorraine, a photography exhibition, opens today at the National Civil Rights Museum.

Outside Lorraine: A photographic journey to a sacred place highlights the museum as a Mecca for peacemakers and as a place of remembrance and connection during the museum’s 30th anniversary, according to a message from NCRM.

The year-round exhibition runs until April 2022.

The exhibition features the work of David Katzenstein, who created narrative imagery for art exhibitions, global corporate giants, and philanthropic organizations.

The collection contains over 90 photos that help visitors identify with social problems and with each other.

From the publication:

The idea began in 2017 when Katzenstein returned to the museum with his family. He noticed how much time people spent in the courtyard before entering the museum. He spent 20 minutes taking pictures and observing how families, individuals, friends and strangers in this sacred place experienced personal relationships within the collective narrative – a shared human experience of deep loss, grief, triumph, hope and change. He presented his project to exhibition designer and curator Gay Feldman.

The inner courtyard is the first stop at which museum visitors are confronted with assumptions about the civil rights movement. The photographs in this exhibition convey unspoken messages that inform and influence how people understand today’s world. A picture is worth a thousand words.

The art exhibition is included in the museum admission fee.
