Lecture and reception for "Streaming Spirits: By Valerie Hammond and Kiki Smith"

601 Turner Blvd.

"Streaming Spirits" is an exhibition by acclaimed artists Valerie Hammond and Kiki Smith. "Streaming Spirits" was conceived and organized by scholar and guest curator Crista Cloutier. Other works in additional media from the artists' collections are also included.

Taking inspiration from the 19th-century genre of spirit photography, these hauntingly beautiful works on paper use a variety of printmaking techniques as the medium through which to capture manifestations of the self—what master printer and SCAD Atlanta printmaking chair Robert Brown describes as "loose interpretations of the meta-real."

The exhibition, lecture and reception are free with SCAD Museum of Art admission.
