Enjoy a complimentary cup of La Colombe coffee and join Penn History of Art PhD and PennDesign MFA candidates for an intimate conversation inspired by the ICA exhibitions on view.
Jeanne Dreskin, Penn History of Art PhD candidate, leads a conversation that posits reading and writing as a continual feedback loop of consumption and production. Prompted by the ICA exhibition Moyra Davey: Burn the Diaries, the discussion will unpack the circular relationship, both verbal and visual, instigated by the respective roles played by the diary and the photograph in Davey’s work.
Jeanne Dreskin is a second year PhD student in the History of Art Department at the University of Pennsylvania. She has previously held curatorial and publications positions at Dia Art Foundation, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Her research and independent writing projects focus on historical lineages of photography and the intersections between the photograph and other modes of media production in contemporary art.
