Art Studio Visiting Artists Lecture: LaToya Ruby Frazier
Photographer LaToya Ruby Frazier will launch UC Davis’ College of Letters and Science’s “Art Studio Visiting Artists” Lecture series on Oct. 8.
A MacArthur “Genius” Fellow, Frazier’s photographs reveal the impact of systemic problems – from racism to deindustrialization to environmental degradation – on individual bodies, relationships and spaces. In 2016, she spent five months in Flint, Michigan, with three generations of women dealing with the impact of contaminated water. She also took photos of the family of Breonna Taylor, who was killed by police in Louisville, Kentucky, in March.
Online event links and times will be shared soon in October.
