Conversation, Imaging New Haven: Candy/A Good and Spacious Land

Jim Goldberg, Donovan Wylie, Laura Wexler, and Christopher Klatell
Thursday, June 15, 2017, 5:30 pm

Following a joint artist residency at the Gallery in 2013, photographers Jim Goldberg and Donovan Wylie began collaborating on a book project exploring the urban landscape of New Haven, Connecticut. The project grew to include essays by the writer Christopher Klatell, J.D. 1999, and Laura Wexler, Professor of American Studies, of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and of Film and Media Studies; and an introduction by Pamela Franks, Senior Deputy Director and Seymour H. Knox, Jr., Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art. Join these two artists and two writers as they examine the concept of the “model city” through the lens of New Haven in their newly published book, Candy/A Good and Spacious Land, and in the current exhibition of Goldberg and Wylie’s work at the Gallery. Offered in conjunction with the International Festival of Arts & Ideas. Generously sponsored by the Martin A. Ryerson Fund.
