Photography Brown Bag Talk: Rose Dickson

July 18, 2018 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Rose Dickson: Invented Histories

Dickson will discuss her process of looking for the line between art object and artifact and what is created when we, as viewers, invent histories for found and made objects.

About Rose Dickson:
Rose Dickson is a multidisciplinary artist based in Portland, Oregon. This spring, she participated in an eight-week residency at the MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire. Dickson’s work has been exhibited internationally and she shows with the Portland based gallery Melanie Flood Projects. Her work is in the collection of the Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Art and the Smithsonian Museum of American History.

Every third Wednesday of the month at noon, photography enthusiasts gather at the Museum to hear talks by regional photographers, gallerists, historians, curators, and collectors.
