Artist Talk with Justine Kurland

RESCHEDULED TO WEDNESDAY, NOV 3

This lecture will follow the trajectory of Justine Kurland’s work with an ear to photography’s inherent world building. Here photography imagines a social space, part fiction part reality that forges a historical present, a shared liveable world. It is a call for freedom – freedom to create, to destroy, to imagine, and to reshape our visual and social world.
