November 19 – artist Lisa Kereszi

Please join us for an illustrated talk by artist Lisa Kereszi on Monday November 19 at 5pm in Taylor Hall Room C. This event is organized by Special Collections Art and Artifacts and presented with the support of the Friends of the Bryn Mawr College Library.

Lisa Kereszi (Born Chester, PA) presents images from and engages in a Q&A on her long-term project documenting her family’s Philadelphia-area scrap business (the subject of her new book, “Joe’s Junk Yard”) and several other bodies of photographic work. “Joe’s Junk Yard” was recently highlighted in the New York Times, and Philadelphia’s Space 1026 will host a solo exhibition of Kereszi’s work in January 2013.

Before Lisa’s talk, please consider checking out Docu-Commencement: Kay Healy, Jennifer Levonian, James Johnson, and Gilbert Plantinga, the residency-based new-works exhibition on currently on view in the Class of 1012 Rare Book Room gallery in Canaday Library. We’ll keep the show open until just before 5.
