Phyllis Wattis Theater

Capturing images of everyday Southern life and vernacular culture, William Eggleston developed a highly personal style that flirts with the banal and exploits the visual vocabulary of the snapshot. In this special event, Grundberg presents a critical perspective on Eggleston's extraordinary career. In relation to Eggleston's practice, Christenberry talks about his work, which also pays tribute to his Southern roots. The event concludes with a conversation between these colleagues and friends.

Eggleston will make a special appearance for a book signing following the program.
