In each hand I keep each of my eyes stages a series of encounters between 15 photographs by Manuel Álvarez Bravo from Hampshire’s permanent collection, and contemporary artists working with moving images. With an emphasis on material—texture, touch, friction, weight, density, light—Álvarez Bravo, Buster Graybill, Tanya Lukin Linklater, Dawit L. Petros, Nandita Raman, and Ani Rivera reconfigure discourses on rural space, indigeneity, and heritage. This exhibition is a first draft, a kind of thinking out loud, designed to lift the millstone of “the greatest Mexican photographer” hanging around Manuel Álvarez Bravo and test other questions of his work.

Made in America features the work of artists and activists, inside and outside prison, to explore tensions between exploitative prison labor and the creative and intellectual labor of incarcerated individuals. While the former profits state correctional services, private corporations, political interests, and consumers, the latter offers powerful articulations of subjecthood and resistance in the face of a dehumanizing system.
