In Conversation: Ken Rosenthal and Robert Clarke-Davis

Saturday, January 28

Join us at LATITUDE for an artist talk and conversation between artist in residence Ken Rosenthal and Robert Clarke-Davis, Associate Professor of Photography at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago . Ken will be delivering a presentation outlining his past projects and his current body of work in production during his residency at LATITUDE using the Piezography PRO printer. Ken first met Robert in the early 90’s while completing his MFA at SAIC and have since stayed in touch. The artists will engage in an open dialogue and discuss the progression of Ken’s work and the development of his latest increasingly autobiographical series. Stick around after to view a few of his latest Piezography prints in person, they won’t disappoint!
