Bev Grant and william cordova in conversation at OSMOS

We invite you to join us for a film screening and live conversation with Bev Grant and william cordova, moderated by OSMOS founder Cay Sophie Rabinowitz. Select works will be on display from the book, Bev Grant Photography 1968 - 1972 (OSMOS, 2021).

*Masks required

American photographer Bev Grant’s work, created between the late 1960s and early 1970s reflects her time participating in and covering left wing and radical protests along the East Coast. Shot on a Pentax 35mm camera, Grant’s captivating black and white imagery, unseen until 2017, paints a storied first-person picture of resistance and uprising, highlighting groups such as New York Radical Women, Black Panther Party, and the Young Lords. Grant’s work catalogues numerous demonstrations and political protests, including the Miss America Pageant Protest and the Free Ericka Huggins and Bobby Seale Demonstration among others, giving us an intimate view into the passion and purpose of these past events that feel just as relevant today as they did fifty years ago -- the resemblance between the radicalized movements of the late 1960s and those of today hold space for this kind of historical photography, rooted in social and political activism, giving it a feeling that is both fresh and familiar. 

william cordova is an interdisciplinary cultural practitioner born in Lima, Peru. Cordova's work addresses the metaphysics of space and time and how objects change and perception changes when we move around in space.

Bev Grant’s book can be purchased via while supplies last.
