Members Event | Artist talk with Lydia Goldblatt
Thursday 20 November, 19:00
Free and exclusive to Members
Lydia Goldblatt trained at LCC, receiving an MA in Photography with distinction in 2006. Her work has been exhibited and published internationally, winning a range of awards and in 2013, her series Still Here was published as an artist monograph by fine art publishers Hatje Cantz.
Photofusion first exhibited Lydia’s work in a two-person show while she was undertaking her Masters Degree. Since this time, Lydia has maintained an ongoing relationship with Photofusion, alongside developing a network of curators, publishers, galleries, writers and clients.
In this evening event, Lydia will talk through the process of “emerging” into the art and photography world, building her career, making and funding work, balancing personal projects with editorial commissions.
Photofusion’s Angad Kaur, who has been a supporter of Lydia’s work since her MA, will contribute points about how curators and galleries build relationships with artists.
