    07/25/2019 Update: The current run of "Go Down Moses" is sold out, but you can pre-order a copy. Books will ship the week of August 26th. Thank you for your patience.

    Organized by acclaimed writer, photographer, and critic Teju Cole, the exhibition Go Down Moses presents a reinterpretation of the Museum of Contemporary Photography’s permanent collection that can be understood as a visual tone poem. Exploring elemental themes of movement, chaos, freedom, and hope, Cole uses the photographic archive to interweave the past and present, suggesting an aesthetic approach to understanding both human suffering and compassion.

    This original publication accompanying the exhibition features reproductions of key images, as well as an interview with Cole and MoCP Chief Curator and Deputy Director Karen Irvine about his curatorial process.
