The Nasher Museum presents an exhibition of vibrant color photographs that capture a variety of basketball hoops around the world. The artist, Bill Bamberger, is a Durham resident and instructor at Duke's Center for Documentary Studies and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. From Maine to Florida and Rwanda to Mexico, the hoops indicate places both where basketball is played and where communities and relationships are built. They are objects that often shape and reflect these communities. As a part of many diverse landscapes, the hoops become integral elements of each location's unique narrative. Duke undergraduate students curated the exhibition through a Curatorial Practicum class taught at the Nasher Museum by assistant curator Molly Boarati.
