“Capturing Fiction” with Sam Cannon
presented by the George Eastman Museum
Artist talk on April 22 as part of the new Future/Present series
The George Eastman Museum will continue its new series of virtual talks, Future/Present, this month with “Capturing Fiction,” featuring artist Sam Cannon. The series features early- to mid-career photographers and artists who are exploring some of the most pressing issues of our time and pushing the boundaries of image-making and visual culture today.
Cannon will take us inside her digitally altered worlds that blend fantasy, surrealism, and fashion to create works of art that challenge our perception of nature, the human body, and technology.
In addition to discussing her previous projects, Cannon and special guest musician Benjamin Bailey (Jacob Asher, Joywave) will collaborate on a live music video performance with visuals produced in real time.
Cannon is an artist and director working at the intersection of photography, video, installation, and performance art. Her work has been exhibited at Art Basel Miami Beach, Mana Contemporary, and Spring/Break Art Show. The Impression magazine included her in their “50 Female Creatives Representing the Next Generation of Talent” in 2018 and Wired named her one of their “23 Photographers You Should Know” in 2019.
The event is free for museum members and $10 suggested ticket for non-museum members.
