CENTER presents the Photographer Presentations with the Grant and 1st place recipients of our Award categories. Each artist shares an intimate view into their project, followed by a moderated discussion and audience Q&A with Mary Statzer, Ph.D., Curator of Prints and Photographs at the University of New Mexico Art Museum. This year the presentations were hosted virtually, allowing us to document and share the presentations with global audiences.
CENTER is thrilled to share with you the Photographer Presentation's LIVE recorded event. Watch the individual presentations below:
Kathleen Clark // "The White House China"
Frank Lopez // Photographer & Educator
