Benzie Building, Room 303
Mishka Henner is among a new generation of artists redefining the role of photography in the Internet age. Much of his work navigates through this vast digital terrain to focus on key subjects of cultural and geo-political interest.
He was awarded the ICP Infinity Award for Art and shortlisted for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize in 2013 and the Prix Pictet in 2014. His works are held in the Museum of Modern Art, Tate Collection, Victoria & Albert Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Public Library, the Centre Pompidou, and the Cleveland Museum of Art. He has exhibited internationally in numerous group shows and surveys. In this talk, Henner will discuss his work in connection to ideas of appropriation.
Please note the artist talk and Q&A will run from 2-4pm, Wednesday 24 May 2017 but the reading group session will be open from 10am

Nothing Abandoned Is a series of talks, workshops and an exhibition, inspired by ideas of surplus, suspension, usefulness and incompletion. How can stories be relinquished and retold? How do we render new narratives from abandoned material?
Our aim is to instigate conversation across the schools of the arts and humanities.
