Join Durham artist Bill Bamberger and Duke undergraduate students for a talk about "Courtside: Photographs by Bill Bamberger," which the students co-curated through a Curatorial Practicum class taught at the Nasher Museum, within The Collection Galleries. Free and open to all.

"Courtside" is an exhibition of 20 vibrant color photographs that capture a variety of basketball hoops around the world. Bamberger is a Durham resident and instructor at Duke's Center for Documentary Studies and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

From Maine to Florida and Rwanda to Mexico, the hoops indicate places both where basketball is played and where communities and relationships are built. They are objects that often shape and reflect these communities. As a part of many diverse landscapes, the hoops become integral elements of each location's unique narrative.
