Olivia Parker: Vanishing in Plain Sight
Saturday, February 8th, 2020
Short Film and Lecture: 1:30pm
“Vanishing In Plain Sight” is a deeply personal series from Olivia Parker, born from her husband’s journey through Alzheimer’s Disease. John Parker passed away in December of 2016 and the experience moved her to explore new grounds of “self-portraiture and dramatic grid sequences, while still retaining the vivid color and abstract liveliness that have become the signature of her still life work.”
A short film and discussion will explore how the disease affects patients and family members and how photography can help bridge the gap between memory and forgetting.
