Five Tables of Gatherings

What draws people together? Whether through celebration, harvest, performance, or gratitude, autumn evokes connection. Before the chill of winter sets in, Five Tables of Gatherings hopes to invigorate viewers with the dynamism of human interaction—candid and staged. Selected by the BAMPFA Student Committee, the displayed works include James Lee Byars’s Bright Tribute to the Discovery of the Human Spirit, Howard Fried’s concert photographs, nineteenth-century albumen prints, and more.
