Borderlands Lecture | University of Hartford

The University of Hartford Humanities Center Lecture Series for Spring 2019, focusing on the theme of “Evidence in a Post-Truth World,” continues Tuesday, March 26 (7:30-9:00 p.m. in Dana 201) with Hannah Smith Allen, Assistant Professor of Photography at Adelphi University, who will present “Borderlands,” a discussion of the photographs she took of the U.S./Mexican border landscape after the 2016 presidential election. The result, a series entitled “Borderlands,” consists of photographs, Google Maps video stills and screen-prints that illustrate the interconnectedness of the U.S. and Mexico, despite the politics that renders them separate. Professor Allen has an MFA from the School of Visual Arts (NYC) and creates artwork on issues related to war and nationhood, examining how, as she says, “images of conflict and contested lands shape American psyche and history.”

I am humbled that Ella Mudie writes about "Scheduled implosions" in her moving article, "This World is Fragile," published in the Australian art magazine, Fine Print. Mudie considers warfare and ruins by examining new works made by New York and Beirut artists. See asjacent link:


Scheduled Implosions artist book will be on view 6/17 at Magnum Foundation as part of "Awake," 10x10's reading room featuring original works of Protest, Liberty, and Resistance. Stop by if you can to see an incredible selection of photo books!


I am honored to have several pieces on view this Summer in UICA's exhibition, The Jump Off, which is open to the public June 2nd through August 26.

From the UICA website:

"UICA celebrates 40 years of experimentation and growth with The Jump Off, a group exhibition that features multiple works by local, regional, and national artists. The artists included in the exhibition reveal the evolution within the creative process by presenting artwork that defines their current practice paired with earlier works - specifically, exposing the piece or pieces that served as the clear turning point; catalyzing the spark for their new work’s materials, visual or conceptual content."

The exhibition opens on June 2nd in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Click here for details.
