Known and Strange: Photographs from the Collection
American photographer Susan Meiselas first achieved international renown for her photographs documenting conflict in Central America in the 1970s and 1980s. Her photographs from this period included monochrome and colour works, which at the time were both pioneering and controversial. A member of the Magnum agency since 1976, she has worked in colour and black and white throughout her career to communicate her role as a witness to world events, and to connect audiences with the subjects depicted. Meiselas will be in conversation with Dr Marta Weiss, V&A Senior Curator of Photography.
This talk kicks off the conference Colour Fever (25 October – 5 November), supported by The Bern Schwartz Family Foundation and hosted in collaboration with the V&A Research Institute. Please see the attached programme for full details of the conference.
This talk will be held online and all ticket holders will receive a link to join via email prior to the event.
