South Beach, 1977 – 1986.
Photographs by Gary Monroe. Curated by Maryanna G. Ramirez.
In 1977, Gary Monroe embarked on a decade-long project to photograph the aging Jewish community in South Beach. He had grown up around this community and sought to capture the vibrancy and slow decline of this close-knit neighborhood.
Curated by Amy Galpin, Chief Curator.
Organized in 5 sections, the show examines how art objects, created across cultures and during different time periods, relate to one another and to a myriad of publics.
