Christopher Dickey: Reporting From the Front Lines

 

From the jungles of Nicaragua and the deserts of the Middle East to the political jungle of Washington, D.C., journalist and author Christopher Dickey has been there, in the thick of the action, observing and reporting. This exhibition traces his career through its geographical rambling and the reporting it produced. The exhibition began with Dickey at work on his first book, With the Contras: A Reporter in the Wilds of Nicaragua (1986).

Christopher Dickey is the son of American poet/author James Dickey; and the exhibition explored their complicated relationship through Christopher Dickey's personal memoir, Summer of Deliverance: A Memoir of Father and Son (1998). Manuscript pages from an early draft along with correspondence and family photographs shed light on a complex family story.

 

This exhibition is no longer on view.
