Please join us for a new photography exhibition, Embarrassment of Riches,  presenting more than twenty color photographs and two videos by contemporary artists who explore the subject of wealth in the past ten years. Following a decade of unprecedented historical fluctuations and flows of wealth on a global scale, this exhibition examines the transformative effects of prosperity from the U.S., to China, to the world. Selected artists include: Luc Delahaye, Jacqueline Hassink, Christian Jankowski, Sze Tsung Leong, Martin Parr, Robert Polidori, Alex Prager, Cindy Sherman, Alec Soth, and Eve Sussman.

Save the date! Exhibition opening on Thursday, September 16, 2010, 6-9 p.m. There will be a Gallery Talk with David E. Little, curator and head of the MIA’s Department of Photography and New Media at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 16. The exhibition is free and will be in the Harrison Photography Gallery on the third floor. It will run through January 2, 2011.
