The American South has become a nexus of film production in the United States. By 2016, more major features were being shot in Georgia than in California. Alex Harris began photographing this wave of filmmaking, focusing his attention on independent productions. In addition to more than 65 prints, the exhibition includes a three-channel video piece composed from numerous stills Harris created on set, which evokes the emotional range and complex narrative techniques employed by the filmmakers he worked with. He intentionally sequenced the resulting images, pairing them with a newly commissioned score, to draw out the recurring themes prevalent in recent popular cinema. On view through May 3, 2020. Museum hours: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday and Saturday; 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Friday; noon-5pm Sunday; closed on Mondays.
