'Listen to Your Art' with Megan Jacobs

Friday, Jan 21, 2022 at 1:30pm

Megan Jacobs will discuss the life and work of Japanese photographer Rinko Kawauchi. 

Megan Jacobs is an Associate Professor in the Honors College at the University of New Mexico and an Adobe Master Educator. Jacobs earned an MFA in photography and her work explores delicate relationships—our existence as material and concept, the interweaving between two partners in love, and the bond of parent and child. Her work has been featured in Musee Magazine, Lenscratch, Feature Shoot, Frankie Magazine, and F-STOP Magazine. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and has been part of exhibitions at Aperture Gallery, Blue Sky Gallery, The FENCE, Saatchi Gallery, the Museum of New Art (MONA), Pingyao Photographic Festival, and the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA).

Rinko Kawauchi is one of the most lauded Japanese contemporary photographers. Her work uses photography as a tool to poetically record and highlight the aesthetics of everyday life. Her works have been published in dozens of monographs which explore motherhood, Japanese culture, and the natural world. This lecture will explore the breadth of Kawauchi’s work and forge connections between her unique photographic approach and the field of contemporary philosophical study, aesthetics.

The lecture will be hosted through Zoom and is accessible with the following link and passcode:
