Southern Rites: Artist Talk with Gillian Laub
October 28 at 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
In conjunction with the exhibition Southern Rites at the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture (October 15–December 12), artist Gillian Laub will present a virtual tour of the exhibition.
American photographer Gillian Laub (b. 1975) has spent the last two decades investigating political conflicts, exploring family relationships, and challenging assumptions about cultural identity. In Southern Rites, Laub engages her skills as a photographer, filmmaker, and visual activist to examine the realities of racism and raise questions that are simultaneously painful and essential to understanding the American consciousness.
