Dawoud Bey: Conversation on Photography, Empathy & Historical Memory

Arnold Newman Lecture on Photography

Photographer Dawoud Bey has explored the complex histories and contemporary experiences of U.S. communities since the mid-1970s. Through meticulously conceived and collaboratively realized projects, Bey probes matters of identity formation and collective memory, creating indelible portraits of landscapes and people from Harlem to Birmingham. Bey will speak about the evolution of his photographic practice and engagement with communities with Casey Riley, Mia’s curator of Photography & New Media.

A professor of art at Columbia College Chicago, Dawoud Bey has been recognized by the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the MacArthur Foundation.
