Join us to celebrate the opening of Brian Weil, 1979–95: Being in the World and Moshe Ninio Rainbow: Rug.

From 3 to 4 pm, Guest curator Stamatina Gregory and visual literacy pioneer Philip Yenawine lead a walkthrough of Brian Weil, 1979-95: Being in the World, carving out a space for engagement and discussion within a body of work that, by design, complicates the relationship between photographer, subject, and viewer. Gregory is an independent curator and critic, whose years of research on Weil’s oeuvre uncovered rare and previously unidentified self-portraits and brought his final, unfinished transgender project to light. Yenawine—an activist, longtime friend of the artist, and co-founder of Visual Understanding in Education (VUE)—has been at the front lines of the fight for arts education, expanded visual literacy, and intentional looking for two decades.
