Join us for an artist talk with celebrated photographer and graphic designer, Angela Grauerholz. This afternoon presentation investigates memory, the archive, and the subjectivity of vision across the artist’s own oeuvre. Grauerholz will activate ROAAr’s collections, which includes a large-scale photograph in the McGill Visual Arts Collection and Privation (2002), an artist book in Rare Books and Special Collections.
Join ROAAr for this hybrid event. This event will be live-streamed for remote attendance, and we will be happy to host a limited number of in-person attendees.
Details and RSVP information to come.
