Photography Graduate Student Hellen Gaudence is participating in Un | Moored: Oscillations and Migrations, a group exhibition opening Saturday, February 11 at the Arts at CIIS in San Francisco, California. In conjunction with the opening reception, The Arts at CIIS is delighted to host UC Berkeley historian and scholar Leigh Raiford in conversation with Gaudence. They will be exploring her images, which pair portraits of African immigrants to the American Southwest with “portraits” of the landscape of Tanzania, the artist’s homeland. How can we think about representation of the African diaspora through the figure and the land?
The show will be on display February 3 – March 17, 2017.
