Art at Lunch with Photographer Dona Ann McAdams

Performative Acts

Join photographer Dona Ann McAdams for a tour of her show Performative Acts, on view now through August 15, 2021.  The exhibition consists of photographs featuring documentation of performances, protests, queer liberation, farmers, animals, and collaborative portraits of people living with cognitive disabilities. Dona will share some of the stories behind the photographs and take your questions live via Zoom.

About the Presenter:

Dona Ann McAdams has been making photographs for over forty years, her work exhibited at venues such as the Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The International Center for Photography, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, among other places. Since 1983, she has been committed to bringing cameras and photography into small, underserved communities, setting up community darkrooms and teaching people how to shoot, process, and develop their own film and document their own lives. She has worked in places as diverse as adult homes for people living with mental illness, homeless shelters, small mountain communities in Appalachia, dairy farms in New England, and on the backstretch of thoroughbred racetracks.

Art at Lunch:

Save the date! On the first Tuesday of every month, we will introduce you to an artist, explore a painting, or engage in conversations about the amazing and diverse art present in Vermont and in the greater Bennington area.

Art at Lunch is offered at no charge to Bennington Museum members (follow the “Get Tickets Here” link to register) and on a pay-what-you-wish basis to Not-Yet-Members.
