The conversation will take place Wednesday, September 28, 2016, at 6 p.m. and a reception will follow at 7:15 p.m. This special event will feature an Artist Talk with Greene highlighting her notion of images as an activist-iconic expression. The conversation will also delve into her success as a photographer, scholar and mentor.
Greene is an associate professor of photography at Columbia College Chicago. Her recent book, “My White Friends,” examines her exploration into photography’s description of race. Greene’s work is in the permanent collection of Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, The National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, and The New York Public Library.
