Artists Now! Guest Lecture Series: Ian van Coller
October 10 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Ian van Coller was born in 1970, in Johannesburg, South Africa, and grew up in the country during a time of great political turmoil. These formative years became integral to the subject matter van Coller has pursued throughout his artistic career. His photography has addressed complex cultural issues of both the apartheid and post-apartheid eras, especially with regards to cultural identity in the face of globalization, and the economic realities of everyday life. Most recently his work has focused on environmental issues related to climate change. His work has been widely exhibited in the United States and South Africa, and is included in many significant museum collections including The Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Getty, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The South African National Gallery (IZIKO).
