Ian Strange: Disturbed Home Book Launch, Signing, and Artist Talk
When: Wednesday, 21 September 6:30PM - 8PM
Damiani, Thames & Hudson Australia, and Bookshop by Uro are proud to host an artist talk and book signing events with artist Ian Strange to celebrate the release of ‘Disturbed Home’.
'Disturbed Home' is the first comprehensive survey of Strange's architectural interventions, including photographic and filmic interpretations of those structural works. Highlighting projects of the past twelve years and spanning geographies from Strange’s native Australia, to New Zealand, Japan, Poland, and the United States, Strange’s provocative transformations of damaged or abandoned homes unlock themes of social upheaval and geographic displacement caused by a variety of factors—economic blight, environmental disaster, and social migrations.
Published in partnership with FotoFocus, and on the occasion of the 2022 FotoFocus Biennial, Disturbed Home includes scholarly essays by FotoFocus artistic director and curator Kevin Moore and Britt Salvesen, curator and head of the Wallis Annenberg Photography Department and the Prints and Drawings Department at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).
