An Evening with Tabitha Soren and Bridget Quinn, 1/31/19
Mark your calendar for a special conversation and book signing on January 31, 2019 from 7 to 8:30 in the lower-level screening room of Lesley University’s University Hall, 1815 Mass Ave, Cambridge.
You may know Tabitha Soren from her television work. But she’s also an accomplished photographer whose work is in many prestigious museums and private collections.
Tabitha’s work speaks to the twists of fate in life that can unhinge us. She visualizes psychological states; the internal weather that storms through each of us.
RUNNING depicts the fight or flight response. PANIC BEACH upends the viewer as panic attacks do. FANTASY LIFE is about what it looks like to try to touch greatness. SURFACE TENSION reflects the struggle we all face as we adapt to technological domination.
Her series Surface Tension opens at the Davis Museum at Wellesley College in Wellesley, MA on February 7 and runs through June 9, 2019.
Bridget Quinn’s book Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art and Made History (In That Order) was an Amazon pick for Best Art & Photography Books 2017, and a 2018 Amelia Bloomer List selection of recommended feminist literature from the American Library Association.
Bridget’s writing appears in Narrative magazine, the San Francisco Chronicle, Hyperallergic, Ms. Magazine, and elsewhere. She’s received three Pushcart nominations, and her essay At Swim, Two Girls was included in Best American Sports Writing 2013.
