Jan. 16-March 11: Time Photo Editor Uncovers Global Inequality in New Samek Exhibit

Myles Little, an associate photo editor at Time magazine, curated an exhibit that explores the world of privilege beyond what is typically portrayed and invites the viewer to pause and reflect on a significant social issue today. His exhibit, “1%: Privilege in a Time of Global Inequality,” opened Jan. 16 and runs through March 11 in the Samek Gallery on the top floor of the Elaine Langone Center.

Little gathered images that examines wealth globally and in many different ways. He selected a small number of polished, well-crafted, medium format photographs by some of today’s best photographers. He wanted to borrow the language of privilege and use it to observe and critique privilege.

An opening reception for the exhibit will be held Thursday, January 25 at 6 p.m. in the Samek Gallery.  The Samek Art Museum and Bucknell’s Tuesday Film Series will host a second event to celebrate the exhibit when it screens Lauren Greenfield’s acclaimed work “Queen of Versailles” and a new short “Bling Dynasty” in the Campus Theatre on Tuesday, Feb. 20 at 7 p.m.
