Book talk and 35mm slide presentation by Curator/Editor Tara Nelson, Visual Studies Workshop (Rochester, N.Y.)

Luther Price (January 26, 1962 – June 13, 2020) was a prodigious artist whose work unearthed the deepest, darkest corners of the human experience. Working in film, sculpture, and performance, his haunting portrayals are often manifestations of personas drawn from lived traumas, thickly layered with paint, glitter, glue, and bodily fluids. His practice evolved to include found footage and “handmade film” techniques, incorporating ink, dirt, spit, splices and the process of decay into the production. In the last decade of his life, Price created breathtaking collages on 35mm slides, combining the techniques he had mastered in his film works to culminate in single frame compositions. A selection of these slides can be seen in New Utopia, Light Fracture by Luther Price, the latest publication from VSW Press. Curator and editor Tara Nelson will present the book followed by a projection of Price’s 35mm slides.

This series is made possible by the Department of Art, the Film and Media Studies Program and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
