Artist Meghann Riepenhoff will join Curator and Head of Photography Erin O’Toole in conversation on the occasion of Sightlines: Photographs from the Collection, which features Riepenhoff’s large-scale cyanotype made by ocean waves crashing onto paper treated with photographic chemistry. Riepenhoff and O’Toole will discuss the collaborative nature of Riepenhoff’s process, impermanence, influence, and environmentalism, all considered within the current discourse and history of photography. The exhibition coincides with the release of Riepenhoff’s second monograph, Ice (published by Radius Books and Yossi Milo Gallery), which will be available for purchase and signing after the talk. Writer Rebecca Solnit, who contributed an essay to the monograph, will also give a reading at the event.
