Presented by MOPLA, Art Weekend LA and D.A.P., influential photographer, Richard Misrach, will give an artist talk and book signing at the Ronald F. Deaton Civic Auditorium. Misrach will be signing copies of his newest acclaimed Aperture monograph, Destroy this Memory immediately following the talk. Published in August 2010 to mark the fifth anniversary of Hurrican Katrina, this powerful volume of perviously unpublished, masterful photographs, shot by Misrach in the aftermath of the storm, are an affecting reminder of the physical and psychological impact of Hurricane Katrina as told by those on the ground.
Artist’s royalties for this project are being donated to the Make It Right Foundation, which is currently rebuilding the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans.
