Friends Lecture: Wing Young Huie

With generous support from the Mark and Mary Goff Fiterman Fund, the Friends of the Institute present Wing Young Huie and “How Are We Formed By Photographs?”.

Celebrated photographer, Duluth-born Wing Young Huie, has captured the complex cultural realities of American society for over 40 years. His projects have been exhibited in museums nationally and internationally, but his best-known works, Lake Street USA and the University Avenue Project, were epic public art projects that transformed Minneapolis and Saint Paul thoroughfares into six-mile community galleries, reflecting the everyday lives of thousands of its citizens.

Wing will discuss his practice, and how he uses his photography to explore the question: how are we formed by photographs?
