Event Description

Honoré Daumier and Danny Lyon. Installation view of Illustrating Injustice: The Power of Print, 2021, Hen

Join Associate Curator of Collections Dr. Ann Poulson for an online interactive conversation featuring installation photography and video of Illustrating Injustice: The Power of Print. Highlighting the power of printed material to communicate social and systemic injustices, the exhibition features work by French lithographer Honoré Daumier (1808–1879, Marseille, France) and American photographer Danny Lyon (b. 1942, New York, NY), as well as a selection of late twentieth-century prison newsletters from the Washington Prison History Project archives. We invite you to join Dr. Poulson in a discussion of the themes and intentions of the exhibition, the aesthetic and cultural contexts that inform the artists’ work, and the varying and continuing ways in which printed matter has been instrumental in uncovering and shaping perceptions of social inequities. Dr. Ann Poulson is the Associate Curator of Collections at the Henry Art Gallery. Before joining the Henry, she worked with international organizations in the arts, heritage, and design, including the National Portrait Gallery, London; the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum; and Sotheby’s. Her academic experience includes teaching undergraduates at Goldsmiths, University of London; and at King’s College London (where she received her PhD in 2015). She has an MA in Modern History from the University of Durham, UK; an MA in Fashion History and Museum Practice from the Fashion Institute of Technology, NY; and a BA in Art History from Brigham Young University, UT.
