The Art Practice Talk Series features faculty from the Department of Art & Art History who talk about their own studio and artistic practice. The 2017 - 2018 speakers include Josephine Taylor (November 9, 2017), Jonathan Calm (March 8, 2018) and Terry Berlier (April 5, 2018).
Jonathan Calm is a visual artist and assistant professor in Photography at the Department of Art & Art History at Stanford University. His interests include urban architecture and housing, and he is currently developing new work around the representation of African-American automobility, featuring performance, reenactment and portraiture to evoke the tension between moving and still images and bodies.
This lecture will focus on African-American Automobility: The Dangerous Freedom of the Open Road, which is the same title of the exhibition of his work on view at the Stanford Art Gallery from January 23 - March 18, 2018.
Registration is not required. This program is free and open to the public.
