Inspired by the impact of photography and memory of artist Carroll Cloar’s work, the University Libraries will host a talk and historical discussion with Coriana Close, assistant professor of photography at the U of M, Thursday, Sept. 5, at 11:30 a.m. in the Ned R. McWherter Library, room 226. The event is free and open to the public.

Paid parking is available in the Zach Curlin garage, adjacent to the library.

Close’s photography deals with lost histories, and her research-based artworks focus on revealing the unseen. She will present her series “Deadlands: Lost Cemeteries of Shelby County,” discuss an anti-racist library intervention titled “Defaced: A Found Archive,” and screen several video pieces.

Close earned her BA in cinema studies with honors in studio art from Oberlin College and her MFA in photography from the University of Arizona. She has exhibited and lectured in universities and galleries across the United States, and her photography and video work has also been profiled in numerous publications.
