Craft Lake City "Lunch & Learn" Virtual Discussion
Celebration of the Hand: Mother Wound
Friday, November 17 from 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m MST
Artwork by Russel Daniels
Thank you for your interest in attending a free virtual discussion on Friday, November 17 at 11:30 a.m. inspired by Celebration of the Hand: Mother Wound!
On View from November - December 2023, Celebration of the Hand: Mother Wound features aerial photographs from local photographer Russel Daniels. The images depict mineral extraction and waste in the Western United States.
Russel Albert Daniels is an artist and photographer based out of Salt Lake City. His work stands in the cross current of art, reportage, and re-indigenization. His craft places storytelling at the forefront of a rich photographic practice which aims to bring visibility to Native American and underserved communities. His projects explore the ways in which identity, place, and history illuminate the aftermath of manifest destiny.
In this public online event, Craft Lake City’s Executive Director, Angela H. Brown, will converse with the artist whose work appears in the new exhibition & talk in depth about what inspired this motif as well as the story behind the stunning images. SLUG Magazine's Parker Mortenson will moderate the discussion with Russel Daniels and UMFA Curator, Emily Lawson.
