East Building, SECU Auditorium
In his aerial photography series Black Maps, David Maisel explores the aesthetics and politics of radically human-altered environments, including open pit mines, clear-cut forests, and classified military zones. His surreal and disquieting images take the viewer toward the margins of the unknown and posit an expanded definition of contemporary landscape.
Enjoy a complimentary glass of wine before the lecture.
Please arrive early to choose your seat. Late arrivals may be seated in an overflow area.
