Hotter Than July: The Bruce W. Talamon R&B Photographs
July 28th  until Summer 2023

Exhibit Opening Featuring Gallery Talk and Book-Signing with Bruce W. Talamon – Thursday, July 28th 5:30p.m.

“Hotter Than July: The Bruce W. Talamon R&B Photographs is an ethnographic study, a visual representation of Blackness and personal analysis of a culture during the golden age of Soul, R&B, and Funk (1972-1982). The exhibition title is a reference to Stevie Wonder’s 19th studio album. The photographs show pivotal moments from the culture-shifting television series Soul Train, and groundbreaking concerts including the 1972 Wattstax Music Festival and the 1977 P-Funk Earth Tour. Bruce Talamon’s work provides a meaningful counterpoint to the voyeurism of those who have marginalized Black culture as his photographs share an insider’s view. From the smoke-filled clubs on the Crenshaw Strip in South Los Angeles, to the largest arenas around the world, Talamon was there, recording the frenzy and beauty of the music. ”
