ZOOM - Coffee @ The Commons: Lissa Rivera

10:00-11:00am CDT Friday, March 27, 2020 Online
Supported by the KU Photography Program, the Departments of Design and Women, Gender, & Sexuality Studies, the Center for Sexuality and Gender Diversity, and The Commons.

In partnership with the Hallmark Lecture series, Lissa Rivera will host a Coffee @ The Commons conversation on The Evolution of Identity: Adaptation and Image in the Age of Photography.

Lissa Rivera is a photographer and curator based in Brooklyn, NY. Rivera received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts, where she became fascinated with the social history of photography and the evolution of identity, sexuality and gender in relationship to material culture. ‘Beautiful Boy,’ Rivera’s latest project, takes her interest in photography’s connection with identity to a personal level, focusing on her domestic partner as muse.  

As a curator, Rivera strives to include traditionally underrepresented voices regardless of formal education or exhibition history.

Coffee @ The Commons is intended to provide a venue for conversation between interested members of the community and a visiting expert. In collaboration with departments across the University, The Commons identifies speakers who are on campus to speak about their research, and whose work applies broadly, with implications for many disciplines. Coffee @ The Commons is then an opportunity for more intimate dialogue with these visitors around a more specific topic within their body of work.
