MEMPHIS ARTISTS IN REAL TIME

Brooks Museum / 1934 Poplar Ave. February 1 - June 27th

Johnathan 'Malik' Martin, Tad Lauritzen Wright, Andrea Morales

How do artists navigate conflict in real time? For Memphis photojournalists Johnathan “Malik” Martin and Andrea Morales, the answer may seem, at first, simple. Their job is to take pictures that tell a story to be used in digital or print journalism. In these examples, viewers experience powerful stories about Memphis during “Safer at Home” and the various crises that ensued after the pandemic began in March through the presidential election of November 2020.
