176_fomu-web8Contemporary Artist Lecture series: Adam Broomberg and Oliver Charnarin
Saturday, February 7, 2 pm (
Everything Was Beautiful and Nothing Hurt

Learn about the recent work and current projects of Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, London-based artists whose collaborative projects use the book form, photography, video, and installation art to explore political conflict, violence, and the ramifications of image-making. Past exhibitions include shows at The Museum of Modern Art, Tate Britain, Tate Liverpool, The Gwagnju Biennale, the Stedelijk Museum, and New York’s International Center of Photography. They won the ICP Infinity Award 2014 for their book Holy Bible, inspired by Bertolt Brecht’s annotated Bible, and the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize in 2013 for earlier, equally provocative undertakings. This lecture will be followed by a reception for the artists.


Lecture: Josh Gosfield (
Saturday, February 28, 2 pm 

Politicians, con men and movie stars are in the identity assembly business. Artists, photographers, and filmmakers are in the image making business. In this talk, artist Josh Gosfield tells the tale of how he commandeered the tools of identity assembly to fabricate the life story of Gigi Gaston, the Black Flower, a 60’s French Pop Star who never existed. (Meet Gigi in Constructed Identities, on view in the Photography Gallery through April 26.)
