"How does Thoreau’s cabin differ from Virginia Woolf’s ‘A Room of Ones Own’, or in this case a van?"
Justine Kurland photographs on extended road trips. Her work spans the imagined wanderings of tribes of outsiders to looking at the road as a thing in itself. She will discuss her work in relation to freedom and feminism: born of the struggle to leave a home that didn't feel like home, to go it alone, to say, “fuck you!” to Parents, God, and Country.
Her work is in the public collections of institutions including the Whitney, the Guggenheim, and the ICP, NYC; the Corcoran, Washington, DC; and the Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal. She is represented by Mitchell-Innes & Nash, NYC. She received her MFA from Yale in 1998.
