Artists on Artists: Paul Mpagi Sepuya on Real Worlds: Brassaï, Arbus, Goldin

Artists on Artists: Paul Mpagi Sepuya on Real Worlds: Brassaï, Arbus, Goldin
Los Angeles–based photographer Paul Mpagi Sepuya skillfully collapses traditions of the studio portrait and self-portraiture in compositions that are distinctly contemporary. Using art historical tropes and his own subjectivity to explore assertions of the gaze, Sepuya turns his careful eye to the exhibition Real Worlds: Brassaï, Arbus, Goldin. Guiding a tour through a selection of the works on view, Sepuya will draw connections to his own artistic practice, which also consistently depicts those who make up his world—friends, peers, and lovers.

Priority tickets are available to MOCA members one hour before the program. Fifteen minutes before the program begins tickets will be released to non-members. One ticket per person on a first come, first served basis. Early arrival is recommended.
