Moyra Davey: Artist Talk

Moyra Davey: Artist Talk
Donnerstag, 7. Dezember 2017, 19 Uhr, Aula

Moyra Davey works as a photographer and author and over the last few years has created a work that combines the two fields. One must also consider her as a reader who, as an intellectual artist, similar to an academic scholar, researches, scrutinizes, and integrates writings into her works and negotiates them. In this sense, she equates taking photographs as capturing her surroundings with writing notes while reading.

The artist talk will accompany her exhibition at Portikus titled Hell Notes, which will open on Friday, Dec 8 at 19h.

Moyra Davey was born in Toronto in 1958. She earned a BFA from Concordia University, Montreal, in 1982, and an MFA from the University of California San Diego in 1988. In 1989, she attended the Independent Study Program at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

Der Vortrag findet in englischer Sprache statt.
