The Afterlife of Jim Crow: Artist Talk with Brian Palmer and Erin Hollaway Palmer

  • 1708 Gallery 319 West Broad Street Richmond, VA, 23220 United States (map)

Join 1708 Gallery for a conversation with Brian Palmer and Erin Hollaway Palmer about their ongoing work at the East End Cemetery and how their photo-journalistic practice developed into their current exhibition The Afterlife of Jim Crow.

This exhibition opens a window into the Palmers' years-long preservation project at East End Cemetery. Photography, historical research, and journalism are brought together into a creative and artistic practice. The Palmers’ images communicate the personal, tactile, and unexpected details made visible by the act of reclamation. In addition, this exhibition presents the growing online archive devoted to East End—the individuals buried there, the community they created, and the context in which they lived.
