Meiselas will share the evolution of two projects in process: one based in Cova da Mora outside of Lisbon, Portugal and the other in Rochester, New York.
Susan Meiselas is a documentary photographer and member of Magnum Photos since 1976. She is the author of Carnival Strippers, Nicaragua, and Pandora’s Box, and editor of El Salvador: The Work of 30 Photographers, Chile from Within, Kurdistan: In the Shadow of History, and Encounters with the Dani.
Her awards include the Robert Capa Gold Medal, Leica Award for Excellence, Maria Moors Cabot Prize, the Hasselblad Foundation Prize, the Cornell Capa Infinity Award and most recently, the Harvard Arts Medal. In 1992 she was made a MacArthur Fellow. Her photographs are included in American and international collections.
Susan Meiselas is a Robert Lehman Visiting Artist at The Cooper Union for Spring 2013.
The Interdisciplinary Seminar was designed twenty years ago to contribute to a regular and sustainable discussion on artistic practice for the students of the Cooper Union School of Art and the creative community that surrounds them. Lectures are free and open to the public.
The Spring 2013 Interdisciplinary Seminar is part of the Robert Lehman Visiting Artist Program at The Cooper Union. We are grateful for major funding support from the Robert Lehman Foundation.
Located in the Frederick P. Rose Auditorium, at 41 Cooper Square (on Third Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets)
