Contemporary Art in Conversation: JoAnn Verburg


Flash must be enabled to see the video player.

JoAnn Verburgs portraits, landscapes, and still lifes engage the viewer in a push and pull of time. Her images feature bodies floating in and out of space, newspaper headlines that recall past events, and olive trees that belong to no era in particular. In this conversation with Walker consulting curator Siri Engberg and Museum of Modern Art photography curator Susan Kismaric, Verburg discusses her 30-year career and muses on the ways artists performing on the Walker stage in the early 1980s altered her view of photography.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Present Tense: Photographs by JoAnn Verburg.
