December 4- January 17: Record of Cherry Road By Elizabeth Moran

The NYU Tisch Department of Photography & Imaging presents Record of Cherry Road, an exhibition of photographs by alum Elizabeth Moran, recipient of the Department’s 2013 Tierney Fellowship.


Ongoing Through January 17, 10:00 am-7:00 pm Weekdays
The Gulf+ Western Gallery
721 Broadway

Moran explains, “Record of Cherry Road investigates the myths that surround my family’s home, the farmhouse of an old plantation in Memphis, Tennessee. Storied to be haunted, the house contains a multitude of histories that are ever-present yet hidden... the project questions our continued reliance on photography to prove a belief.”

This event is free and open to the public.
A photo ID is required when entering the building.
