At land’s edge, an autonomous pedagogical platform and group based in East and South Los Angeles that nurtures the voices of cultural producers committed to social transformation, will present a public lecture with Mid-City based artist Suné Woods at the William Grant Still Arts Center on Thursday, October 6 from 6-8pm.
All are welcome and we hope that you can join us!
Suné Woods artwork takes the form of multi-channel video installations, photographs, and collage. Her creations examine absences and vulnerabilities in cultural and social histories, and also use sites such as family to understand larger sociological phenomenon, imperialist mechanisms, & formations of knowledge. She is interested in how language is emoted, guarded, and translated through the absence/presence of a physical body. Woods received the Visions from the New California initiative, The John Gutmann Fellowship Award, and The Baum Award for an Emerging American Photographer, and has served as Visiting Faculty in the CalArts Photography & Media Program, Vermont College of Fine Arts Visual Art Program.
This event is the first in a series of lectures and conversations organized as part of the 2016-2017 at land’s edge Research Fellowship’s public programming.
