What’s Going On: Marvin Gaye’s America
In partnership with Miramar Cultural Trust
January 12 – February 28, 2017 Marvin Gaye’s 1971 critically acclaimed, landmark album What’s Going On addresses social issues of the 1960’s and 70’s and implores America’s return to spirituality. Using historic and contemporary lenses, this exhibition explores the album’s themes of war, economic inequality and civil unrest through photography, graphic art, and interviews. It invites visitors to reflect on American life in the 1970s, and to measure the progress of our society nearly five decades later.
