Exhibition Twofer: Zoe Strauss To Discuss Bruce Springsteen’s Influence On Her Life And Work, March 4
As part of the Zoe Strauss: Ten Years exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, featuring the photographer’s engaging career which has covered a lot of territory both literally and figuratively, Strauss will take part in a live discussion at the Philadelphia Museum of Art about the influence Bruce Springsteen has had on her life and work, March 4.
It’s an awesome crossover between two major exhibits in town right now: the aforementioned Zoe Strauss retrospective and the National Constitution Center’s blockbuster Springsteen feature.
At the March 4 event, Strauss will address the ties between visual art and music and the conceptualization and formation of her decade long I-95 project.
Based on Springsteen’s musical path, Strauss describes her installation beneath the South Philly underpass as her Welcome to Asbury, N.J. through Born to Run phase.
Held at the museum’s Van Pelt Auditorium, the event is free; you can reserve tickets online.
If you can’t make the discussion, you can still see Strauss’ work on display through April 22, and the Springsteen exhibit through September 3.
