Liz Deschenes

Liz Deschenes has been described by the New York Times, as "one of the quiet giants of post-conceptual photography." In her work she strips the medium of photography to its essential core through a body of abstract and now sculptural photographic installations. Deschenes was born in Boston and teaches at Bennington College, VT.

This talk is presented by the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum through the generosity of the Phyllis & Jerome Lyle Rappaport Foundation and is co-presented with MassArt. Deschenes is the 2014 recipient of deCordova's prestigious Rappaport Prize, an annual award given to an established contemporary artist with ties to the New England area. All attendees will receive a free pass to visit the deCordova.
