Re-imagining an Inclusive Family Album
Speaker: Thomas Allen Harris
This presentation will discuss the evolution of the artist’s work with the Family Photo Album as a central trope as well as a tool for community storytelling over the past 25+ years. The talk will examine the interplay between family narratives and cultural shifts within the interweaving of disparate family archives within his films and most recently in the new PBS series, FAMILY PICTURES USA. This talk will discuss the possibilities of new narratives emerging from reconstructing the family photographic album.
