Thursday, July 26th, 7:00 pm, Silver Eye Center for Photography, 4808 Penn Ave.
Join us this Thursday evening, as Silver Eye hosts the Fellowship 18 International Prize Winner, Soohyun Kim, and his mentor, artist Doug Ischar, a Professor of Art at the University of Illinois at Chicago, for a conversation on how the idea of “international” functions in both their practices. Kim will speak about his exhibition at Silver Eye, Guryong Village In Seoul, and Ischar will screen his film, Tristes Tarzan, which was previously shown during the 2014 Whitney Biennial. Join us for a discussion on how these two artists explore and interrogate ideas of borders, divisions of class, and identity in different ways.
This program is made possible by a grant from the Keyword: International Initiative, a collaborative initiative to creatively define Pittsburgh as an international city at this moment in time. The initiative launched in January 2018 with a community forum, introducing the vision for the program and its interrelated activities: research, a public symposium, and a publication. This program will contain some violent imagery and may not be suitable for younger audiences.
