June 11 – August 4, 2013 at the Harry Ransom Center, Austin, TX
Artist talk: Thursday, July 18, 7pm (more info)
This exhibition was created in cooperation with the Lakes Were Rivers collective, an Austin-based group of artists working in photography and video. Members of the collective created a body of work influenced in some way by the Ransom Center—its space, its purpose, its collections. Approximately 50 new works are displayed alongside Ransom Center collection materials chosen by the artists. The pairings highlight how archives and cultural collections stimulate new ideas and creative acts.
I am super excited to be a part of this and Lakes Were Rivers.
