Artist Talk with Jessica Harvey
Join us for an artist talk presented by LATITUDE’s November Artist in Residence Jessica Harvey!
Harvey will provide an overview of her practice and discuss the challenges, rewards, and obstacles in working with both personal and institutional archives. During their residency, Harvey has worked to scan and reproduce piezography prints of the series Ashes to Ashes, a project utilizing intimate aspects of the physical body without revealing the actual human form. Following this presentation, Harvey will be releasing two new photo zines produced during their residency. Zines will be available for purchase at this event.
Harvey will be producing work prints specifically for this event and invites the community to engage with this work in person.
*Harvey’s Residency at LATITUDE is proudly supported by Canson Infinity Paper *
