IRIS Nights Lecture Series: Children of War
Photographer/educator Donna De Cesare has spent two decades focusing on the lives of Central American children exposed first to war and later to gangs. Her newly published book Unsettled / Desasociego: Children in a World of Gangs is both a memoir and a visual history of her experiences. De Cesare teaches documentary photography at the School of Journalism at the University of Texas at Austin.
The Annenberg Space for Photography offers live programming through our IRIS Nights lecture series, a public program offered free of charge, by online reservation on a first-come, first-served basis. The series brings to life the most current exhibit with presentations by exhibit featured photographers and other notable experts and guest artists. These programs give attendees unique access to the artists in the intimate setting of the Photography Space.
Please note that our lectures tend to fill up quickly. Don't be discouraged if you are unable to get tickets through our online ticketing system. The standby list for each lecture begins at 5pm on the day of the event in person at the Photography Space. About 10 minutes prior to the start of the lecture, we release any seats that have not been claimed by ticketholders to our standby guests.
