A Morning with Janna Ireland
Join the Santa Barbara Museum of Art for a conversation with artist Janna Ireland in connection with the exhibition Janna Ireland: True Story Index, presented by the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara in a landmark two-institution collaboration and presentation on view February 11 to June 2.
Curated by Charles Wylie, SBMA Curator of Photography and New Media, and Frederick Janka, MCASB, this exhibition is a mid-career survey and the largest presentation of Ireland’s photographs and installations to date.
Janna Ireland lives in Los Angeles, where she is an assistant professor in the Department of Art and Art History at Occidental College. A broad selection of Ireland’s work was included in the exhibition Family Album: Dannielle Bowman, Janna Ireland and Contemporary Works from LACMA at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Charles White Elementary School Gallery. Ireland’s photographs are held in the permanent collections of institutions including LACMA, the Nevada Museum of Art, the California African American Museum, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, and the Museum of Contemporary Photography at Columbia College Chicago.
This conversation will be followed by a reception at the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara from 12 – 4 pm.
