In the Studio with Hannah Whitaker
Wednesday, April 7
6:00 p.m. - 6:45 p.m. EDT
Join us “in the studio” with artist and photographer Hannah Whitaker, as we learn about her experimental and multilayered photographic approach.
In conversation with Sheree Hovsepian, Whitaker will talk about her images, created in-camera through meticulous masking and layering or complex lighting configurations, resulting in a kaleidoscopic assembly of diverse subject matter. The brilliant compositions, surrealistic and colorful at first glance, can be viewed as parts of a whole that question “the generative potential of human error in the face of digital automation.”
Hannah Whitaker (born in Washington, DC, 1980) is a longtime member of the Aperture family. Her work has been featured in Photography Is Magic (Aperture, 2015) and Aperture Online. She was included in Public Art Fund’s 2017 citywide exhibition, Commercial Break, in New York; Foam Talent 2014, which traveled to Paris, Amsterdam, and Dubai, United Arab Emirates; and Les Rencontres d’Arles, France, in 2012, where she was nominated for the Louis Roederer Discovery Award. In 2020, her work was featured in the inaugural Henie Onstad Triennial for Photography and New Media, Høvikodden, Norway.
