In Conversation with Harvey Finkle and Community Leaders
Join the discussion! On Friday, October 7 at 6 pm, Fleisher will host a conversation with Harvey Finkle and community leaders including Leticia Roa Nixon, Thoai Nguyen (SEAMAAC), Blanca Pacheco (New Sanctuary Movement of Philadelphia), and Yoshan Chuo. This event is presented as part of the exhibition Under One Sky: Reflecting Immigrant Communities Through Photography, The Photographs of Harvey Finkle, 1982-2018. For over five decades, Finkle has captured the essence of various communities—notably immigrant communities in Philadelphia—and political movements, as well as a wide range of human emotions with his dedicated lens.
Under One Sky is curated by David Acosta, artistic director for Casa de Duende. The exhibition is arranged thematically in a conscious effort not to segregate groups by ethnicity but to place them within the larger context and themes of everyday life. The retrospective exhibition, on view in Fleisher’s Dene M. Louchheim Galleries from September 26 through November 5, includes over 70 photographs showcasing 17 immigrant communities living in different Philadelphia neighborhoods.
This event is free and open to the public. Registration is encouraged but not required: register here.
