Anderman Photography Lecture: Sami Alkarim

Denver-based artist Sami Alkarim works with photography as well as painting, sculpture and video. Growing up in Lebanon and Iraq, and now living in Denver, his work continually explores the complex and changing nature of identity and engages memory and sense of place in this exploration.

Examples of his Dream series were included in New Territory: Landscape Photography Today (which was on view through September 16, 2018). These quietly powerful photographs reflect Alkarim’s life experience and demonstrate the self-aware and hopeful perspective he was able to retain despite extreme hardship.

In this talk, he will discuss the Dream series and other projects as well as share insight into the motivation behind his work. Please join us for what is sure to be an interesting and inspiring talk.

Doors open at 6:30 pm.

Tickets are $5 for students, DAM members, and CPAC members, $12 for general admission.
