Binh Danh reconfigures traditional photographic techniques and processes in unconventional ways to delve into the connection between history, identity, and place. Danh is noted for his contemporary daguerreotypes of national parks. Their reflective surfaces enable people of all backgrounds to see themselves as a part of the beauty of the American landscape. His work has been collected by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the National Gallery of Art, Washington; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the San Jose Museum of Art, among others. He is an associate professor of art at San José State University.
This event is co-presented by the Deborah and Kenneth Novack Creative Citizens Series and the Larry Sultan Visiting Artist Lecture Series. The Deborah and Kenneth Novack Creative Citizens Series is funded by an endowment gift to support an annual series of public programs focused on creative activism. The Larry Sultan Visiting Artist Lecture Series is supported by the Fine Arts Division, Nion McEvoy, Pier 24 Photography, and the Larry Sultan Estate.
Free and open to the public
