Artist Talk with Avelina Crespo

Artist Talk with Avelina Crespo

Sat 03 Dec 2022, 03 pm – 05 pm
Matca Space for Photography
48 Ngọc Hà, Ba Đình district, Hanoi

From the organizer:

In the talk, Avelina Crespo will share the process behind three bodies of work, “Fotos Gratis” (2002 – 2011), “Small Displacements” (2015), and the latest series “Diffractions” (2018-2021) currently on show at Matca Space for Photography. These works were developed in different places and their creative process emerged from very different strategies. This reflects her constant concern with context, negotiation, performance, staging and materiality when using the photographic medium.
