R.C. May Photography Lecture Series: Michael Flomen

Date: 
Friday, April 5, 2019 - 4:00pm

In his monumental photographs, Michael Flomen connects to the pulse and substance of the natural world. Working at night, he coaxes fireflies to trace their paths in bioluminescent light on sheets of film, as in the diptych Double Trouble, a recent gift to the museum. He takes swaths of light-sensitive paper—as large as 4 by 8 feet—outdoors and submerges them in ponds or lays them out on a winter meadow, catching the shadows of marine life or the rhythms of drifting snow.

R.C. May Photography Lecture Series: Stephanie Syjuco

Date: 
Friday, March 1, 2019 - 4:00pm

Stephanie Syjuco’s photographs and installation work address a range of contemporary issues, including the disputed ground of identity; nationality and citizenship; and the varied legacies of colonialism. The artist was born in the Philippines and came to the United States with her family at the age of three; her background is difficult to establish from her appearance. She explores that indeterminacy by often appearing as her own model in different guises, as can be seen in Cargo Cults: Head Bundle.
