The MFA in Photography and Integrated Media program welcomes artists to campus as part of the graduate programming for its students and the greater Lesley and Cambridge communities. Laurel Nakadate visits the College of Art and Design as part of the 2017 MFA in Photography and Integrated Media Visiting Artist Lecture Series.
She will be screening her film The Wolf Knife and taking a Q and A after.
Laurel Nakadate creates provocative works in video, photography, performance and film that challenge conventional perceptions of power, seduction, tenderness and trust. Her early relationship to the fixed viewpoint of the camera, as both artist and subject, insistence on simple production values, and her upending of public and private ritualistic behaviors, anticipated the amateur video aesthetic of YouTube diaries and internet blogs.
