Archie Lieberman Black Star Exhibit

Archie Lieberman Black Star ExhibitThe Archie Lieberman Black Star exhibition features a selection of Lieberman’s photographs during his time with Black Star, a photographic agency offering photojournalism and stock photography services. It is an important supplier of photographs to Life and other magazines. Culled from thousands of negatives, most of the photographs shown in the exhibit were not chosen for their original publications. Despite the variety of content, these striking photographs reveal a sense of humor and an interest in the unusual. Lieberman worked with Black Star for nearly a decade.

The Archie Lieberman Black Star exhibition is part of the Archie Lieberman collection, a generous gift from the Lieberman family to the Archives and Digital Collections at Columbia College Chicago. Lieberman taught photography at Columbia College during the 1960s. Curated by Thatiana Oliveira, a graduate student in Photography at Columbia College Chicago, the exhibit runs through September 30, 2011. An exhibit reception will be held Tuesday September 13, 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Library, 3 North.
