5:30pm Members-only Curatorial Tour of The Qualities of LIGHT

The Center for Creative Photography has built a research exhibition about the 1970s/1980s New York City photography gallery LIGHT, and raises questions about our contemporary connections to photography’s histories. On this curator-led exhibition tour for CCP members at 5:30pm, Drs. Rebecca Senf and Meg Jackson Fox dive deep into the themes and materials of the exhibition, the artists included and the discoveries made, and the transformation of the Heritage Gallery into the LIGHT Lab. Then stay for the film screening and print viewing that extends the sight line of the creative processes and critical histories found in the exhibition. Space is limited for this portion of the event - please RSVP to


6:15pm - 7:30pm Public Film Screening and Print Viewing

At 6:15pm in the CCP Auditorium, you will not want to miss the first public screening of the new documentary by Lisa Immordino Vreeland that combines archival documents, contemporary interviews, and historic footage to explore the significance and impact of LIGHT Gallery. The screening will be followed by a print viewing of additional artists who showed with LIGHT, drawn from the CCP collection.


The curatorial tour is for members only, and the film screening and print viewing are free and open to the public.
