Artist and curator Meg Griffiths will be an artist-in-residence at Utah State University, April 11-12. She will give a lecture on her photographic practice at 10 a.m. Wednesday, April 12 at Utah State University’s Chase Fine Arts Building, Room 109.
The lecture is presented by the Caine College of the Arts’ Department of Art + Design and the USU Photography area.
“Meg’s work grapples with the various modes of domestic, cultural, and political engagement that structure female experience in the United States,” said Assistant Professor of Photography Jared Ragland. “Her visual inquiries are driven by a desire to capture, develop, and share a closer understanding of female subjects and explore the intrinsic connections between self and other, interiority and positionality, kinship and community––important topics that are of primary interest to our predominantly female-identifying student body.”
Meg Griffiths is an artist, professor, independent curator, and co-founder of A Yellow Rose Project, a photographic collaboration of responses, reflections, and reactions to the 19th Amendment from over one hundred women across the United States. She is based in Denton, Texas, where she is Assistant Professor of Photography at Texas Woman’s University. Griffiths’ work has travelled nationally and internationally, and is placed in collections such as Center for Creative Photography, Capitol One Collection, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and Center for Fine Art Photography. Her book projects have been acquired by various institutions around the country including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Yale University Library, Duke University Libraries, Museum of Modern Art, The Getty Research Institute, and is included in the USU Photobook Special Collection.
In addition to her lecture, Griffiths will meet with advanced-level USU Bachelor of Fine Art photography students and conduct individual portfolio critiques.
