SFC FAST FORWARD - SUNÉ WOODS
In Conversation with Julie Casemore of Casemore Kirkeby
FREE REGISTRATION: https://sfcamerawork.org/2021-online-event-fast-forward-sune-woods
Please join us on Tuesday, May 11th for an artist talk with photographer Suné Woods. This is the second talk of our new Fast Forward series, in which we reunite with previous SFC exhibiting artists, who share how their photographic practices have evolved since their time at SF Camerawork. Suné Woods was selected as the recipient of the Baum Award for an emerging American photographer in 2016, and her work To Sleep with Terra was exhibited as a solo show at SF Camerawork in recognition of the award. In this work, her practice employs video, photography, and collage to address imperialist mechanisms and formations of knowledge. Her current video and movement work addresses notions of intimacy and love through connections to the aquatic world. We welcome you to learn more about her practice in a moderated conversation with gallerist Julie Casemore of Casemore Kirkeby followed by audience q&a.
