MITCH EPSTEIN in 'In Conversation with Walker Evans: Four Photographers'

Art Museum of West Virginia University
22 Jan - 25 Apr 2021
In conjunction with Walker Evans American Photographs, on display in the Upper Gallery, the Art Museum is featuring the work of four contemporary photographers in an adjacent gallery installation. Matt Eich, Mitch Epstein, Andrea Modica, and Jared Thorne each make pictures that resonate with Walker Evans’s photographs in distinctive ways, both visually and conceptually—and sometimes unexpectedly. Together they demonstrate how Evans’s work continues to influence artists today, nearly a century after he first visited the region.
