Museum of Contemporary Photography exhibiting artist Paul Mpagi Sepuya will lead a Lecture in Photography on his work in "Echoes: Reframing Collage."

Museum of Contemporary Photography (MoCP) exhibiting artist Paul Mpagi Sepuya will discuss his pieces in the current exhibition Echoes: Reframing Collage and his artistic process Wednesday, November 7.

Sepuya’s work in Echoes: Reframing Collage explores the intimacy created during portrait sessions between the photographer and subject and the performative nature of photographing and posing in a studio environment. A companion exhibition to The Many Hats of Ralph Arnold: Art, Identity & Politics, Echoes: Reframing Collage is part of Art Design Chicago, an exploration of Chicago’s art and design legacy, an initiative of the Terra Foundation for American Art with presenting partner The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.

Sepuya is currently a visiting faculty member at CalArts, and his work has been featured in the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and the Museum of Modern Art, among others.

Echoes: Reframing Collage is on display through December 21 at the MoCP.
