Friday Evening Guest Speaker: Zoe Strauss

Friday, March 07 - 5:30PM to 7:00PM
Holiday Ballroom

Homesteading was artist Zoe Strauss's multi-faceted contribution to the 2013 Carnegie International. A major component of the project was the portrait studio Strauss opened in Homestead, a Pittsburgh-area community in decline since closing of the Homestead Steel Works. Strauss documented hundreds of Homestead residents and produced two prints of each portrait: one for the museum and one for the subject. She will discuss this project and her earlier work, components of an artistic practice that often sheds light on the forgotten people and places in urban America, embracing the "beauty and struggle of everyday life."
