Artist Shimon Attie will present and discuss a selection of his projects across space and time. The presentation will touch briefly on early works, such as his seminal The Writing on the Wall project, a series of site-specific projections in Berlin’s former Jewish Quarter, while examining in more depth recent works realized in the past five years.
The presentation will conclude with Attie presenting his most recent project, Night Watch, a floating media installation circulating in the waterways around New York City for the month of September in 2018. The piece was made with 12 individuals living in the NYC area, whose lives were saved by having been granted political asylum in the United States.
Lectures in Photography are co-presented by the MoCP and the Photography Department at Columbia College Chicago.
