Lecture: Susie J. Lee

When: Thu., Feb. 18, 6 p.m. 2016

Enjoy a lecture by Seattle-based video artist Susie J. Lee, whose work in State of the Art adds a new dimension to the ancient art of portraiture. She asks her subjects—workers in the oil and natural gas “fracking” industry in her native North Dakota—to sit silently for her video camera for up to 30 minutes at a time. The videos can cause you to feel uncomfortable—even voyeuristic—but also create a powerful awareness of shared humanity and empathy.
