6-7 PM Reception; 7-8:30 PM Lecture

MCASD and The San Diego Museum of Art invite you to the 17th annual Axline Lecture featuring internationally renowned photographer Catherine Opie. Opie’s work both documents and gives voice to America’s communities and the landscape they inhabit. Working between conceptual and documentary approaches to image making, Opie examines familiar genres—portraiture, landscape, and studio photography—with surprising uses of serial images, unexpected compositions, and the pursuit of radically different subject matter.

Tickets are $5 for Members of MCASD and The San Diego Museum of Art, students, seniors, and military personnel; $10 for non-members. Members at the Patron Circle level and above are invited to a pre-lecture reception at 6 PM. To RSVP, please email RSVP@mcasd.org.
