Provisional Aesthetics Artist Talk: An-My Lê
Wellesley welcomes Vietnamese-American photographer and video artist, An-My Lê, who continues the traditions of large-format war and landscape photography associated with earlier photographers, Mathew Brady and Timothy O’Sullivan, with a focus on young women in military service. In addition to the Davis exhibition, selections from the artist’s Small Wars series will be on view in the Babson College Hollister Gallery, November 5 to January 10.
Provisional Aesthetics: An International Visiting Artist Lecture Series is a Mellon Presidential Innovation Project, organized by David Kelley, Associate Professor of Photography in the Art Department at Wellesley, for the Babson-Olin-Wellesley three-college consortium. The lecture series presents three acclaimed artists whose practices have a provisional, propositional, and spontaneous character.
