Room SL24H
Join artist and educator Nina Katchadourian for a presentation and discussion of her work, including her most recent project, Seat Assignment. Improvising with materials close at hand, Seat Assignment consists of photographs, video, and digital images all made while in flight using only a camera phone. The project began spontaneously on a flight in March 2010 and is ongoing. At present, over 2500 photographs and video, made on more than 70 different flights to date, constitute the raw material of the project.

Seat Assignment was exhibited for the first time in February 2011 at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery, a museum in the city of Dunedin on South Island in New Zealand. Since I had 22 hours of flight time from New York to get to the Dunedin I proposed to make the bulk of the work for the exhibition on the way there. In the exhibition, two of the three galleries focused on work made entirely en route. A third room contained works that functioned as a retrospective look on the first year of the project.

Biography: Nina Katchadourian was born in Stanford, California and grew up spending every summer on a small island in the Finnish archipelago, where she still spends part of each year. Her work exists in a wide variety of media including photography, sculpture, video and sound. Her work has been exhibited domestically and internationally at places such as PS1/MoMA, the Serpentine Gallery, New Langton Arts, Artists Space, SculptureCenter, and the Palais de Tokyo. In January 2006 the Turku Art Museum in Turku, Finland featured a solo show of works made in Finland, and in June 2006 the Tang Museum in Saratoga Springs exhibited a 10-year survey of her work and published an accompanying monograph entitled “All Forms of Attraction.” The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego presented a solo show of recent video installation works in July 2008. In February 2010 she was the artist in residence at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery in Dunedin, New Zealand, where she had a solo show entitled “Seat Assignment.” She is currently at work on a permanent public piece, commissioned by the GSA, for a border crossing station between the US and Canada. Katchadourian is represented by Catharine Clark gallery in San Francisco.

Book presentation and photography lecture

Room SL24H

Join photographer and educator Doug DuBois for a presentation and discussion of his most recent book Doug DuBois: All the Days and Nights published by the Aperture Foundation.

Doug DuBois began photographing his family in 1984, prior to his father’s near-fatal fall from a commuter train and his mother’s subsequent breakdown and hospitalizations. While these events set a narrative backdrop to his work, the emotional freight is carried by the details as described by the artist: “the pallor of my mother’s skin, the glare of my father’s gaze and the tactile communion between my sister and nephew constitute a complex and resonant picture of family ties.”

More than twenty years later, DuBois’s project has developed in remarkable ways. Doug DuBois: All the Days and Nights resonates with emotional immediacy, offering a potent examination of family relations, and what it means to subject personal relationships to the unblinking eye of the camera. Each photograph is rich with color, nuanced gestures and glances enveloping the viewer in a multivalent, emotionally tense world.


DOUG DUBOIS (born in Dearborn, Michigan 1960) received his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. His work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; and Parco Gallery, Tokyo, among other venues, and can be found in the collections of major institutions, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Victoria and Albert Museum, London. In 2006, he received the John Gutman Photography Fellowship.
