Richard Misrach Talk

Friday, October 20 - 6:30PM to 7:30PM
LINC Building Room 128

The talk, "Current Projects" will be held in Room 128 at the Learning Innovation Center (LInC), 165 S.W. Sackett Pl., Corvallis. A reception with the artist will be held at 5 p.m. on the first floor of Fairbanks Hall, located near the LInC building at 220 S.W. 26th St. A book-signing will follow the talk.


For four decades, Misrach has been a significant and influential photographer of the American landscape. Known as a pioneer of the 1970s renaissance of color photography and large scale presentation that are still practiced today, Misrach is also known for the monumental epic, "Desert Cantos," a multifaceted study of people's political, cultural and environmental relationship to the natural world.


In his talk, Misrach will speak in depth about Border Cantos, his collaboration with composer Guillermo Galindo, a major undertaking focusing on the U.S. - Mexico border, and his two current projects about the election.
