September 24th- Artist Lecture by LaToya Ruby Frazier

As part of Atlanta Celebrates Photography, artist LaToya Ruby Frazier will be giving a talk about her work at the Hagedorn Foundation Gallery in Atlanta.

The talk will be held Thursday, September 24th , 7pm – 8pm

The exhibition will run: July 31th – September 28th

From the ACP website:

The Notion of Family, Work by LaToya Ruby Frazier (b. 1983). Frazier’s art explores her relationship with her family, similar to artists Doug Dubois and Leigh Ledare. The content, style, and immediacy of her work lead the viewer to assume she is documenting from the outside. In reality, Frazier is in front of the lens exposing her family and herself. Frazier is both content and photographer. Her work blurs the line between self-portraiture and social documentary. LaToya Ruby Frazier has been an artist in residence at Art Omi, The Center for Photography at Woodstock and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Her works have been exhibited at the National Academy Museum, The New Museum, Higher Pictures, Rush Arts Gallery and Schroeder Romero Gallery. She is currently exhibiting works at the Bronx Museum. Frazier is represented by Higher Pictures.

Showing concurrently with Frazier in the Documents: City Life exhibit are: Dawoud Bey, Paul D’Amato, Wayne Miller, and Malick Sidibe.
