Janna Ireland Artist Talk

The 2022 Lorna Spencer Hedges Photography Lecture

Acclaimed Los Angeles-based artist Janna Ireland discusses her multi-faceted practice that includes intriguing staged tableaux of family life and an extensive and ongoing photographic interpretation of the architecture of Paul R. Williams, the renowned 20th-century Black architect who designed many of Southern California’s iconic buildings. Janna Ireland’s three photographs of Paul R. Williams’s Hillside Memorial Park are now on view in the SBMA exhibition, The Lens of Architecture.
