MFA Photography 2014 Alumni Magali Duzant Speaking at Brooklyn Book Festival

Written by:


MFA Photography 2014 Alumni Magali Duzant will be speaking at the Brooklyn Book Festival : Seeing The Story : Creating Narratives in Visual Art. Words are just one way to tell a story, as any photographer, designer, or visual artist will tell you. But how do you craft a strong narrative when you employ one of these alternative storytelling formats? On this panel, photographer Cig Harvey (You an Orchestra You a Bomb), photographer Cecil McDonald, Jr. (In the Company of Black), and multidisciplinary artist Magali Duzant (Light Blue Desire) will discuss their processes for imparting a vision through images, artist books, and more. Moderated by VICE photography columnist Elyssa GoodmanSept 16th at 3pm / Brooklyn Historical Auditorium, 128 Pierrepont St, Brooklyn, NY


In addition to the Brooklyn Book Festival, Magali’s book Light Blue Desire : A Manual For The Color Blue, will be available at Printed Matter’s NY Art Book Fair at Conveyor Editions table ( #X07 ) alongside the last copies of I Looked & Looked. Light Blue Desire maps the amorphous definitions of blue across languages. Gathering idioms from around the world the manual acts as a compendium of contradictions and concepts around a color that is high and low, peaceful and pornographic, melancholic and manipulative, and consistently voted the world’s favorite color.
