Description

Aperture Foundation presents LaToya Ruby Frazier (Artist) in conversation with Karen Irvine (Curator and Associate Director, Museum of Contemporary Photography) The Museum of Contemporary Photography (MoCP) at Columbia College Chicago returns to EXPO to present a video installation by LaToya Ruby Frazier. This panel will serve as an extension of the Special Exhibition on view at the MoCP booth at EXPO, and the museum's concurrent exhibition, "Backstory: LaToya Ruby Frazier, Ron Jude and Guillaume Simoneau," curated by Karen Irvine. For the last decade, Frazier has extensively documented the economic and social struggles of her family and community in her hometown of Braddock, Pennsylvania. Blurring the boundaries between the personal and the collective, Frazier uses her own family's history to reveal both complex intergenerational struggles and social inequality.
