Art as Transformation: Photography for Social Change


Harold M. Williams Auditorium

This is a past event

American artist LaToya Ruby Frazier discusses how she has used photography to fight injustice—poverty, healthcare and gender inequality, environmental contamination, racism, and more—and create a more representative self-portrait. In this talk, she relates her conscious approach to photography, opens up more authentic ways to talk about family, inheritance, and place, and celebrates the inspirational, transformative power of images. Frazier has exhibited her work in numerous international solo museum exhibitions and was awarded MacArthur, TED, and Guggenheim fellowships, among many other honors.
