About the speakers:

Sophie Kier is the director of the Millett Center for the Arts.

Katherine Hubbard uses photography, writing, and performance to plumb photography’s continuing significance. Considering analog photography as a mimesis of the body, Hubbard asks how its procedures might be called upon to investigate social politics, history, and narrative. In her photographs the physical positioning of one’s body has an essential relationship to how one processes images, exploring this encounter as a time based experience. Hubbard’s writing practice forms the core of her performances, culling the malleability of vision to frame a politics of looking, bridging the imaginary with the familiar. Hubbard received her MFA in 2010 from the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College.
