Admission: $5 members, students, military, seniors | $10 nonmembers
James S. Copley Auditorium

“While scott b. davis (who uses a specialized shorthand in which he forgoes capitalization) is inspired by the topography of various parts of the United States, he frequently uses Southern California as his muse. Taken at night with a large-format camera, certain photographs of Southern California document iconic aspects of the region including the Hollywood sign and the bright lights of Los Angeles. Other works in this exhibition offer surprising takes on the area with moody and enigmatic looks at seemingly abandoned highways, parking lots, and buildings.”

From davis’ email: “[in this lecture] i will be highlighting my work and influences over the past decade. the talk begins at 7pm, and coincides with my solo exhibition at the museum. the lecture will be followed by a film screening of jim jarmusch’s dead man at 8pm.”

davis’ lecture is being presented in conjunction with his exhibition Walk From the Sun: Photographs of Southern California.  The exhibition will be up until March 18, 2012.
