Threads of History

February 13 at 2:00 pm

Ginger Owen-Murakami will discuss her path to the creation of new work ­­­— ­­Girl’s Own Guide, a series of wet plate collodion images and mixed media collages. This work amalgamates themes of honoring history and familial nostalgia.

Owen-Murakami is Professor of Photography at the Gwen Frostic School of Art, Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, MI. She holds an MFA in Photography from Louisiana State University and a BFA in Photography from The University of Central Florida. Owen’s artwork derives imagery from narratives and themes of family history, race, gender, and culture. Her interdisciplinary practices include installation, sculpture, digital, traditional, and non-silver photographic processes. She has lectured, worked, and exhibited internationally.
