Curator's Perspective: “Lange: Artist or Activist?"

Presented by Drew Heath Johnson, curator of photography and visual culture, Oakland Museum of California

With hardship and suffering as consistent areas of focus throughout her career, Dorothea Lange created arresting portraits with the aim of sparking reform. Join Drew Heath Johnson as he examines the central theme of Dorothea Lange: Politics of Seeing: the power of Lange’s photography to sway people’s minds and spur them to action. Johnson will look at both the effects of her imagery and her intentions, which could be quite contradictory.

Drew Heath Johnson has worked at the Oakland Museum since 1989, and his duties include the guardianship and sharing of Dorothea Lange’s entire personal archive—a collection with more than six thousand vintage prints and forty thousand negatives, along with the artist’s personal correspondence, field notes, proof sheets, and working documents.
