LIVE from the NYPL: Susan Meiselas with Ann Hamilton: In Focus


Wednesday, May 23, 2018, 7 - 9 p.m.

Program Locations:

Assistive listening devices available

Documentary photographer Susan Meiselas is probably best-known for her work dealing with human rights, cultural identity, and the sex industry. Books like Carnival Strippers, Nicaragua, or Prince Street Girls exemplify the intimate engagements she has with the people whose lives she has explored through photography, film, and video. She is joined by artist Ann Hamilton to document the arc of a career that is currently being celebrated in Mediations, a traveling retrospective of Meiselas's work from the 1970s to the present.

An evening with Susan Meiselas and Ann Hamilton, an annual LIVE program on photography, is generously underwritten by Mahnaz Ispahani Bartos and Adam Bartos.
