Penelope Umbrico (photographs) Book Launch
Penelope Umbrico (photographs) offers a radical reinterpretation of everyday consumer and vernacular images. As the artist describes, she works “within the virtual world of consumer marketing and social media, traveling through the relentless flow of seductive images, objects, and information that surrounds us, searching for decisive moments—but in these worlds, decisive moments are cultural absurdities.”
Join us in celebrating the first monograph of artist Penelope Umbrico along with a reading by poet Rob Fitterman and a conversation with Virginia Rutledge, Vice President and General Counsel of Creative Commons.
