> DESCRIPTION

American identity is inextricably interwoven with ideas of movement, from the movement of population groups in an expanding nation state to the mythos of the open road and the road trip. The exhibition explores the complex trading patterns of native populations, the drive of the railroads, and the valorization of car culture and includes Danny Lyon’s The Bikeriders, Raymond Pettibon’s collaboration Faster Jim, William Henry Jackson’s railroad photographs, and selections from Pomona College’s extraordinary collection of Native American Art.
