The School of Visual Art & Design is happy to welcome photographer Meggan Gould as our guest for the Visiting Artist & Scholar series. Meggan Gould is a photographer living and working outside of Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she is an Associate Professor of Art at the University of New Mexico. She received an MFA from the University of Massachusetts - Dartmouth, and a BA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her work has been exhibited widely in the United States and internationally, and is included in many private and corporate collections, as well as public collections including the DeCordova Museum, the New Mexico Museum of Art, Light Work, and the University of New Mexico Art Museum. Her multifaceted practice uses photography, drawing, sculpture, and installation in an open-ended dissection of vision and photographic tools.

It’s Just Paper Workshop⠀⠀
Friday, November 17, 2017⠀⠀
10AM – 1PM at the Richland Library Makers Space

Because the camera has the power to essentially reproduce a mirror image of the world, scholars and artists alike have often focused exclusively on the content of the image. But a photograph is also a thing—an object with physical, material qualities. And it is a practice: a way of seeing, making, and working, as well as a mode of communication and exchange. This workshop will playfully explore some of the material and practical aspects of the photographic medium, exploiting how a photograph can be an image, a material object, both, or neither.⠀

Artist Lecture⠀
Friday, November 17⠀⠀
4 – 5:30 PM in McMaster 214⠀
Gould will discuss her artist practice and her photographic vision.⠀

Exhibition: The Bureau of Visual Instruction

The Bureau of Visual Instruction is an ongoing, open-ended dissection of photographic vision. This exhibition includes photographs and unique objects, representing a long-term investigation of photographic vision, skewed towards failures, accidents, and mistakes, both deliberate and accidental.⠀

Gould's exhibition can be viewed in the McMaster Gallery until December 14th, 2017.⠀
