Artist Talk Aimée Baubien
Tuesday, March 23, 2021
6:00 - 7:30 PM PST
Please join us on March 23rd for an artist talk with Aimée Beaubien, the recipient of the 2020 San Francisco Camerawork Exhibition Award. The SF Camerawork Exhibition Award recognizes a project proposal featuring exceptional creative photographic work and supports those efforts with an exhibition grant in the amount of $5,000. We welcome you to learn more about Aimée Beaubien's photographic process as she shares a series of recent works and influences in an artist talk followed by a Q&A.
Beaubien's photo-based installations and artists' books explore networks of associations between the archive, the ephemeral and the photographic. Photographed plants, interlaced vines, woven topographies merge into fields of color and pattern and back again expanding the ever more complicated sensations of reading a photograph and experiencing nature.
The 2020 San Francisco Camerawork Exhibition Award has been generously supported by individual donors and by the Delabos-Yamrus Fund.
