Learn more about artist Sandy Skoglund and her work, process, and inspiration in this conversation between her and Eric Paddock, Curator of Photography.
Since the 1970s—through the use of sculpture, installation, and conceptual photography—Sandy Skoglund has been known for her innovative work that combines elements of the everyday with fantasy. To create her surreal photographs, Skoglund constructs elaborate tableaux for the camera incorporating vibrant colors and a range of materials.
Skoglund’s celebrated installation Fox Games (on view from 2008 to 2015) was a visitor favorite here at the museum. Her photograph Revenge of the Goldfish will be included in Modern Women/Modern Vision: Works from the Bank of America Collection (opens May 1, 2022).
This course will take place at the museum in Sharp Auditorium, and online via livestream.
