Exhibition

Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings

On view June 30, 2018 to September 23, 2018

For more than forty years, Sally Mann has made experimental, elegiac, and hauntingly beautiful images that have made her one of the country’s most influential and distinguished photographers. The artist’s first major traveling exhibition, Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings, explores themes of family, memory, mortality, and home as well as the Southern landscape as repository of personal and collective memory. Some 125 photographs — many of which have not been exhibited or published previously — offer a sweeping overview of Mann’s artistic achievement, vision, and drive.

Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings is organized by the Peabody Essex Museum and the National Gallery of Art, Washington. The exhibition is made possible through a grant from The Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation, New York. Carolyn and Peter S. Lynch and The Lynch Foundation and Susan and Appy Chandler provided generous support. We also recognize the generosity of the East India Marine Associates of the Peabody Essex Museum.

When I think about “Powerful Women,” I think about people who have challenged gender norms and limitations.
