The Annenberg Foundation is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibit at the Annenberg Space for Photography, tentatively entitled “WATER: OUR THIRSTY WORLD” in partnership with National Geographic Magazine. The exhibit, opening to the public on March 27, 2010, will coincide with the release of National Geographic’s April 2010 issue on the precarious state of the world’s fresh water.
“WATER: OUR THIRSTY WORLD” will examine the local and global challenges of our planet’s fresh water resources captured by a selection of National Geographic’s finest, award-winning photographers. The digital and print images will highlight the significance of fresh water in our lives and how the diminishment of this precious resource is impacting local and worldwide communities. A digital film presentation will expand the visitor experience by offering hundreds more National Geographic images and shared insights from photographers.
During the three-month exhibit, the free IRIS Nights lecture series will continue to be offered inside the Photography Space on Thursday evenings, and will expand on the images and themes presented in the galleries. Additional programs related to the exhibit will include a themed group slideshow evening, and photography workshops. Details and final schedules will be announced later this winter.
“WATER: OUR THIRSTY WORLD” will be open to the public March 27, 2010, and will run through June 13, 2010.
