FotoFest Participating Space

Gallery Hours
Wed to Sat, 11 am to 3 pm

Extended to Friday, May 3.
Closing reception 6 to 8 pm.

The triumphs and tragedies of the 1960s provided photographer Bob Gomel extraordinary opportunities to help advance American photojournalism. As the images in Eyewitness demonstrate, when history was made, Gomel often was there, making iconic and innovative images of world leaders and events, athletes and entertainers, and great moments in contemporary history — including President John F. Kennedy, the Beatles, Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X, and Marilyn Monroe.

This exhibition, presented by Alta Arts and sponsored by the Briscoe Center for American History at The University of Texas at Austin, and in conjunction with the 2024 Fotofest Biennial, serves as a retrospective of Gomel’s work and includes photographs from his personal collection that are featured for the first time in a public showing.

Multi-Zen-Sery open from 11 am to 8 pm. Closing reception on Saturday, August 5 from 5 to 8 pm.

July 22 through August 5, 2023
