Artist Lecture & Reception: Saturday, February 16 at 6:00 pm
In 2010 Chicago-based artist Jason Lazarus initiated an archive of photographs deemed “too hard to keep” so that there would be a repository for these kinds of images to exist without being destroyed. Submissions include photos, photo albums, and/or photo objects of friends, family, pets, interiors, and landscapes considered too hard to live with any longer.
A 64-page monograph that includes a text by Abigail Solomon-Godeau will be published in June 2013.
