"SECRET GAMES: Wendy Ewald Collaborative Works with Children, 1969-1999"
2006-02-13 until 2006-05-07
Mint Museum of Art
Charlotte, NC, USA United States of America

Award-winning photographer Wendy Ewald has likened herself to a "translator" of the images that her subjects create with the camera; a translator who "acknowledges her own part in making the story." Over a 30 year period, Ewald's unusual artistic path has taken her around the world exploring the visual imaginations of children and adults in a sustained and evolving artistic project. SECRET GAMES: Wendy Ewald Collaborative Works with Children, 1969-1999 is the first major retrospective exhibition of the photographic work of Ewald.

The exhibition consists of approximately 200 photographs,which present 13 bodies of work made over three decades. Each group varies in its presentation, befitting the character of each project - from 4 x 4 images created by children in Appalachia to a recent video installation in which Ewald's North Carolina students take on the roles of Holocaust survivors.

Addressing conceptual, formal and narrative concerns, Ewald's work challenges traditional notions of documentary photography and the role of the artist. Using creative collaboration with children as the basis for the artistic process, she has traveled throughout the world working in communities in Canada, Appalachia, Colombia, India, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Holland, Mexico and Durham, North Carolina. This exhibition presents groups of work made in each of these areas.
