Debating Ballen at SPAODate/Time
Date(s) - Friday, September 14
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
SPAO Centre Gallery
Join us on Friday September 14th at the SPAO Centre (77 Pamilla St.) at 7 pm for Debating Ballen, the next session of our panel series, Parfocal Lens. This panel, featuring Jennifer Dickson, Monica Patterson, Charles Reeve and Patrick Lynn Rivers, will focus on the issues and concepts brought forward by the current exhibition on view in the SPAO Gallery, entitled Roger Ballen: There Is No Outside. Based in Johannesburg, the American-born artist Roger Ballen is a controversial figure whose work often depicts people and spaces that exist on the margins of South African society. In conjunction with the dark and troubling images of the exhibition, Parfocal Lens: Debating Ballen is a conversation certain to be both challenging and illuminating. Admission is free.
