Todd Forsgren “Conflicting Systems” Livestream
April 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join Mary Serbe, Shane de Leon, and artist Todd Forsgren as we walk through and talk about his exhibition “Conflicting Systems”.
“I use photography to examine themes of ecology, perceptions of landscape, and social justice while striving to strike a balance between art history and natural history. To do so, I employ a range of approaches, from documentary strategies to experimental techniques.
Community is very important to me, and I’m proud to be a cofounder of Spectacle Box, and a member of both the Atlantika Collective and f/4.5 Collective. I also organize AgX, and teach at Rocky Mountain College. I live in Montana and spend lots of time in Los Angeles.
I studied biology and visual arts at Bowdoin College and I have a MFA in photography from J.E. Purkyne University. I was an artist-in-residence at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, the Artist’s Enclave at I-Park, and Maryland Hall for Creative Arts as well as a Fulbright Fellow in Mongolia.
My photographs have been featured in National Geographic, Slate, Wired, The Guardian, Nature, New Scientist, and TIME’s Lightbox, to name a few. They’ve been shown at numerous venues including the Cleveland Museum of Art, Noorderlicht Photography Festival, the Academy Art Museum, the Rotterdam Photo Festival, the Indian Photography Festival, Koenig & Clinton, Carroll & Sons, Heiner Contemporary, and Jen Bekman Gallery.”
