Photographer William Christenberry Will Speak About His Work At U.Va. March 17

February 28, 2003--

WHO: Photographer William Christenberry

WHAT: Lecture on his work

WHEN: Monday, March 17, 6 p.m.
WHERE: Campbell Hall, Room 153

Photographer William Christenberry incorporates into his work social commentary on rural Southern landscapes and the margins of small-town life in his native Alabama. Through photographs, paintings, drawings, sculpture, constructions and installations, Christenberry often explores the darker side and fringe elements, including the Ku Klux Klan. Although inspired by a particular time and place, his work has a universal quality. In “Klan Room,” a continuously evolving multimedia installation piece, the artist looks at violent repression and racist persecution in the United States.

Christenberry’s work is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York; The Phillips Collection, the Smithsonian’s American Art Museum and the Library of Congress in Washington; and The High Museum of Art in Atlanta.

This talk is cosponsored by the McIntire Department of Art, the University of Virginia Art Museum and the Art Students Society.
