Artist Talk with Richard Mosse
The Arnold Newman Distinguished Lecture in Photography
Richard Mosse’s recent photography and video work explores the beauty and tragedy of war as it has unfolded through decades of conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Mosse will address the complex visual narrative of The Enclave and his decision to use an obsolete infrared film—developed by the U.S. military to detect camouflage—that transforms shades of greens into candy-sweet pinks, oranges, and vivid reds. In 2014, Mosse represented Ireland in the Venice Biennale with The Enclave. Born in 1980 in Ireland, he is now based in New York. He received an MFA in photography from Yale in 2008.
Opening lecture presented in conjunction with Mosse’s The Enclave, on view November 8, 2014 – February 15, 2015.
The Arnold Newman Distinguished Lecture in Photography is sponsored by the Arnold & Augusta Newman Foundation.
