Description

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear renowned American photographer Joel Sternfeld share his perspective on Sweet Earth—his series of photographs and accompanying texts that chronicle experimental utopias in the United States in regions as diverse as California’s Mojave Desert, a roof garden in downtown Chicago, and the hills of Western Massachusetts. Curator Tina Kukielski describes Sternfeld’s project on view in the 2013 Carnegie International as “controlled, purposeful, and alluring images [with] a casual exuberance for nature, beauty, life, and death.”
