About This Event

June T Sanders will be describing her recent residency at The Fellow-Ship Residency, Guemes Island, WA in 2021, as well as her recent exhibition, “Easy World” at Kolva Sullivan in Spokane, and her solo exhibition “// / “, at Space Place Gallery, in Nigni Tagil, Russia, both in 2021. June describes her photography and writing practice as [trying] “to work with desire on a conceptual and emotional and even a guttural level. The desire towards another, the desire for a new body or a new world, desire as refusal, a desire to be free of oppressive systems, a desire to see and to be seen and to at times be unsubscribed. If my aesthetics can take weight and scrutiny off the body involved and instead shift attention to those desires then I feel like I've done alright.”

Date: February 9, 12-1pm
